  • 21.

  • 23. Strengths Highly educated population with strong engineering and business talent from top universities such as Delft, Eindhoven, Twente and Rotterdam Excellent logistical infrastructure, including mainports: Port of Rotterdam, Schiphol Airport, Amsterdam Internet Exchange, High Tech Campus Eindhoven Attractive business environment, with strong corporate law system, flexible company incorporation and governance and favourable tax regimes Large number of corporates actively investing in tech talent and companies: Philips, Shell, ING, KLM, Aegon, Ahold, Unilever, Randstad, KPN, ASML, TomTom, Booking, Adyen, Uber English speaking, internationally oriented business community; easy migration for high-skilled workers Very high quality of living, rated best in the world Highly digitally connected market, adopting new products quickly; testbed for international success 23

  • 25. 1. Pre-seed investment from Accelerator Accelerator takes 6-8% for €15-25k What to expect when you close a deal in The Netherlands 25 3. Extend financing with crowdfunding campaign Attractive startups can attract from €200k up to €2mln of convertible loan financing at attractive terms (especially p2p: Peerby, Plugify, Snappcar) 4. Early-stage funding by ‘RVO Seed arrangement’ funds Startups with early traction can raise €300k-€3mln from a range of private seed funds, with investment capital matched by public funding 2. Seed funding from local angels First time founders raise €200k-€300k at €1-2m valuation Including businesses with and without traction, also ex-accelerator companies
  • 27. Takeaways ● 6th largest economy of Europe, with Amsterdam as key hub; most international, most digitally connected, best logistical infrastructure, highest labour productivity, highest quality of living, lowest corruption. ● Relatively small home market, but more leading-edge with a population that is relatively quick to adapt new products and services. Startups have to think internationally from the start. ● Dutch VC funding has been focused more on hightech and biotech and the funding environment for digital tech was relatively weak; top digital tech teams moved to the US for larger funding and market opportunities. ● The Dutch startup ecosystem is now coming of age, with Amsterdam taking the lead; the new wave of tech-focused VC funds will allow for larger rounds and better follow-up funding to build more international success stories. ● The most substantial (unicorn) exits have been in pharma; most internet exits have been relatively early to international buyers strengthening their position. The exit market stays challenged, but the planned IPO of Takeaway.com could give a positive spin. 27
