Why is there so much innovation in the Netherlands, and Amsterdam specifically?
The website WIRED.co.uk describes Amsterdam as “a true port city – international, tolerant and adaptable. These qualities, plus liberal tax laws, make it attractive for foreign companies … The cloud is connecting Amsterdam startups in the way the ocean did in the 15th century.”
If Amsterdam and Utrecht are the creative centers, then Rotterdam, Delft and The Hague are the technology centers with cleantech, aerospace and cybersecurity as the top industries.
Then there’s Eindhoven, which was declared the “world’s smartest region” in 2011 by the Intelligent Community Forum. Eindhoven is home to High Tech Campus, a research and development hot spot for companies like Philips and ASML. The campus hosts a growing number of technology startups and leads the development of Internet-based technologies.
The Netherlands Foreign Investment Agency lists Twente, renowned for medtech, nanotechnology and pharmaceuticals, as the final hot spot for entrepreneurs. Startups take advantage of low rent for clean rooms and an extensive community of researchers. MESA+, one of the largest nano labs in the world, is located at the University of Twente.
