Expanding To The
United Kingdom

The Benelux startup scene is booming! It has continued to grow across the years with VC Investment into startups rising from €1.9bn to €2.7bn between 2019 and 2020. Despite a huge knock from COVID-19, it’s clear to see the continuing success and startups within this region hold thus the potential for international expansion as the next steps – with the UK an obvious choice due to its close proximity.

If you are based in the Benelux region, and looking to establish your business in the UK, reach out to Goodwille to hear more about how we can support, and hear about the diverse range of Benelux based businesses we have facilitated the UK market entry of over the past 25 years.

Amsterdam Startup
Scene is Thriving

The Netherlands has positioned itself as a dominant force in the startup scene, hosting a large number of incubators & accelerators. With over 90% of the population speaking fluent English, the UK market is a sensible choice for international expansion.

Amsterdam is gaining global recognition as a centre for emerging tech and innovation, and has one of the most advanced digital infrastructures in Europe – it was recently ranked in the top 5 of the global innovation index!
