Expanding To The
United Kingdom

The Netherlands, nestled within the vibrant Benelux region, boasts a thriving startup ecosystem. From 2019 to 2020, venture capital investment in Dutch startups surged from €1.9 billion to €2.7 billion, signaling remarkable growth and resilience despite the challenges posed by the COVID-19 pandemic. The Netherlands continues to foster innovation and entrepreneurial spirit, with startups here poised for international expansion. Among the promising destinations for growth is the United Kingdom, given its proximity and strategic advantages.
