IT Goes Dutch 

Known as the “Digital Gateway to Europe,” the Netherlands offers an unparalleled information and communications technology infrastructure, a tech-savvy, English-speaking workforce and a competitive tax climate. Plus, Holland leads the European Union in overall startup adoption, according to the European Digital Forum, with an 85 percent success rate, and places first for increasing access to talent, with tailor-made programs to attract foreign entrepreneurial workers.

It’s no wonder more tech companies than ever—from growing startups to multinational giants—chose the Netherlands for their headquarters, data centers and marketing and sales operations in 2016.

“The Netherlands is a relatively mature cloud market within EMEA and having proven its benefits businesses are now really looking to realize the full potential of the cloud.”
