Why invest

Why invest?

From large, established multinationals all the way to the hottest new start-ups, the TopDutch region draws in global businesses as a result of our purpose-driven, people-powered ecosystems, our competitive financial and fiscal environment, and our green, digital and talented business culture.


Economic environment

We’re a small country but a big economic player. We have the 6th largest economy in the EU, despite being only 23rd in size.
However, we’re not resting on our laurels. We’re growing our region’s economy with a focus on green and digital innovation and talent development, because we know that is the key to the future.

The Netherlands is the world’s most connected country. Our excellent physical infrastructure, strategic location and super-fast internet helps us stay globalized.

Our world-renowned knowledge institutions produce internationalized and specialized fresh talent every year, and join the workforce to add to the talent pool ranked no.5 in the world.

Ninety percent of us are fluent in English, and many in other languages. Our workforce has a great understanding of the global market. And we still manage to maintain an excellent work/life balance.

Financial incentives
We’re 6th globally in terms of tax competitiveness. Not only do we have one of the most competitive corporate income tax rates in Europe, but we also provide good fiscal incentives that allows businesses to bring in great international talent.

Business culture
We are leading in developing green and digital solutions for global economic, social and ecological challenges. Innovation is aided by our open, no-nonsense and internationalized attitude. So much, in fact, we’re no.2 on the global innovation index.

Quality of life
Our strong business environment helps us succeed career-wise, but also the region’s culture of work/life balance, relatively low cost of living and focus on healthy ageing adds together to make our citizens the 5th happiest in the world.
