10 Reasons the Netherlands Is a Great Destination for Startups

Is Silicon Canals the next Silicon Valley?The Netherlands is famous for a great many things: bicycles, equal rights, electronic music, cheese, windmills, pancakes, rain, Heineken, weed (I could go on). Its a great place to be, but few know that the country doubles as a popular hub for startups. There are numerous accelerators, incubators, and co-working spaces all providing a welcoming environment to international businesses and citizens alike.

In my 15 years of traveling the world as an expat, Ive returned to the Netherlands at least six times. Allow me to share with you what makes this country a competitive destination for global businesses, entrepreneurs, and skilled workers.Why Is the Netherlands So Attractive for Businesses and Startups?The Netherlands consistently ranks high on many global indices from the fastest internet speeds to quality of life, safety, and overall happiness. Its a pleasant place to live regardless, but there are a few factors that specifically attract international tech startups and companies. These have helped it earn the rank of 1 in the European Union for its startup business climate.Diverse, Global PopulationThe Netherlands is an open, progressive society with a diverse workforce, supporting creativity and innovation. One in five in Dutch society has a parent who was born abroad. The city of Amsterdam celebrates and recognizes residents of 180 different nationalities and counting.English-Speaking90% of Dutch residents speak English, and many are multilingual.

Netherlands Startup VisaThe government created the Netherlands Startup Visa for non-EU/EEA citizens who want to start a business in the Netherlands. It gives budding entrepreneurs one year to launch their business idea with an option to extend for another year. The Ambitious Entrepreneurship Action Plan also supports startups.

Skilled Migrant VisaThis fast-track immigration process for highly-skilled, non-EU immigrants is of benefit to workers and employers alike.Startup Delta MissionFounded by former politician Neelie Kroes, the Startup Delta aims to merge the Dutch startup ecosystem into one single connected hub, remove barriers, and improve access to talent, capital, networks, knowledge, and markets.What does this mean in laymans terms? They want to pave the way for startups in the Netherlands. According to my research at some of the over 60 co-working spaces throughout Amsterdam, Startup Delta initiatives are directly responsible for supporting and growing the startup culture throughout the country.Tax IncentivesBesides providing a level of clarity and certainty that companies can rely on long-term, the Dutch government also offers competitive tax deductions, reimbursements, and allowances. Perks include an effective corporate tax rate as low as 5% for R&D and innovation.

Infrastructure & ConnectivityAnyone who has engaged in international business knows that the low labor and operating costs in developing countries frequently come with trade-offs especially when it comes to a reliable infrastructure. Conversely, the Netherlands is known for its excellent transportation and telecommunications network, which makes doing business that much faster and easier. The country boasts some of the highest broadband speeds in Europe and is even the birthplace of Bluetooth and WiFi.

Strong EconomyThe Netherlands is in the top 5 of the most competitive economies in the world, which speaks for itself.Stable Political SituationThe Netherlands is a functional, democratic, law-abiding society, which tends to create a secure climate for business operations. The Dutch are known to strive for consensus on important issues and have robust social services for their citizens, fostering added security.

Optimal LocationLocated between Germany, Belgium, and the North Sea, the Netherlands is ideal for reaching any part of Europe and the globe. The Port of Rotterdam is also the largest in the world.The Netherlands has an Internet penetration rate of 95.

5%. The country ranks in the top of the European Digital Startup scale over all the indicators required from a policy standpoint for improving and developing ecosystems for entrepreneurs. Coworker.comHow Many Startups are There in Holland?The Angel.co website currently lists a $3.6M average valuation and $66k average salary, with 3,325 companies, 3,098 investors, and 818 jobs available.

Netherlands StartupsBrowse 3,325 Netherlands startups, 3,098 Netherlands angel investors, and 818 startup jobs in Netherlands.angel.coFor comparison, France shows a $3.3M average valuation, $60k average salary, 5,826 companies, 3,149 investors, and 1,428 jobs.What About Funding?Because the Netherlands is such a small country, access to sufficient funding has historically been a hurdle. Since options are somewhat limited, crowd-funding or going to individual investors are two primary ways of raising capital. Although this can be detrimental to a startup economy, there are now plenty of ways for entrepreneurs and indie makers worldwide to raise seed capital in 2018 and beyond. Overall, Holland is still a great place for small companies to launch before relocating to hubs such as London for the next step in their growth model.

Notably, the Netherlands is also attractive to companies on the other end of the spectrum, such as Google, Uber, and Amazon. Brexit has further enhanced the countrys appeal to companies of all scales looking to relocate from the UK.What Does it Mean for You?Paris and London still receive the majority of VC funding in Europe, but the Netherlands business-friendly tax policies, English-speaking population, startup initiatives, and high quality of life are compelling for companies, entrepreneurs, and digital nomads looking for a home.

Emerging economies like China and India are already in-the-know, with hundreds of companies recently setting up shop in Holland.The Netherlands has a number of strengths, including its central geographic location, excellent infrastructure and strong workforce. The personnel are very competitive within a Western European context.

Problems of Phased Array Ground Penetrating Radar Detection System
Although GPR has been widely used in hydrology, engineering, environment and other fields, many basic theoretical and technical problems have not been fundamentally solved, so the real advantages of GPR have not been brought into full play.The main problems existing in GPR technology include:1) The detection depth is shallow, and the contradiction between detection depth and resolution cannot be overcome. Increasing detection depth means sacrificing detection resolution;2) Multiple spread and other clutter jamming are serious, and there has been no good elimination method, which exists in radars at home and abroad;3) The influence of medium unevenness is great and can not be eliminated, resulting in difficulty in obtaining necessary velocity data;4) The data collection method of single sending and single receiving can provide limited information for post-processing and interpretation.The above problems are fatal defects for GPR. Although many geophysicists, electromagnetic experts and geophysical workers have done a lot of research and improvement on radar antenna design, signal processing and underground target imaging, these works are only partial modifications to the existing GPR system. In order to develop GPR technology, we must update our ideas and solve the problems from the fundamental principle.In view of this situation, experts proposed to develop a new GPR system - phased array GPR detection system in 1999.The basic research idea is to replace the current monopole radar antenna with the phased array radar antenna by using the relatively mature military phased array radar technology. Its purpose is to gather the electromagnetic wave into a narrow beam to transmit underground (or detection object) through the phased array technology, and receive the radar echo signal reflected by the target by using the multi-channel acquisition technology, The advanced data processing is carried out, and finally the three-dimensional image of the internal structure of the detection object is given.Development prospect of ground penetrating radar technologyIt is worth noting that at present, similar products have appeared in the market, such as RIS antenna array series of a company, but these products simply combine multiple monopole antennas into array antennas, which is essentially different from the idea of phased array ground penetrating radar.Because the phased array radar converges the electromagnetic wave into a narrow beam by controlling the phase delay of each channel, the energy is concentrated and the wave front diffusion is small. Therefore, the detection depth of the phased array radar is much larger under the condition of the same frequency and transmission power; On the contrary, under the same detection depth, phased array radar can improve the transmission power, so its resolution is much higher than the existing radar. In addition, since the spherical wave transmission is changed to beam transmission, the influence of medium heterogeneity is much smaller.Secondly, the phased array radar works in a continuous scanning mode and can scan in multiple directions. Therefore, the amount of information is much larger than that of the existing ground penetrating radar. For some special detection work, such as the quality detection of embankment cut-off wall, its role is unmatched by the existing ground penetrating radar (monopole antenna radar can not detect the joints, forks and other defects of embankment cut-off wall at all).Because phased array radar is a multi-channel received signal, multi-channel superposition can be carried out, just like the multiple coverage technology of reflection seismic exploration. Therefore, multiple interference can be greatly eliminated, which is difficult for existing radars. The antenna of high frequency (600mhz-1ghz) phased array ground penetrating radar can be made smaller, and its advantages are unmatched by the existing ground penetrating radar in shallow detection.At present, the system prototype has been completed. The carrier free pulse working system with center frequency of 900MHz is adopted, and the transmitting and receiving antennas are separated. 16 (4 × 4) Transmit channel forming, beam aggregation and scanning 16 (4) × 4) The channel receives the echo, and the optional scanning angles are - 36 °, - 24 °, - 12 °, 0 °, 12 °, 24 ° and 36 °.The software part of the system has rich data processing functions. The main conventional processing includes filtering, gain adjustment, static and dynamic correction, deconvolution, complex signal analysis, time-frequency analysis, etc., and multi-channel data processing, such as velocity analysis, superposition technology, coherence analysis technology, array signal processing, etc. And weak signal extraction, target automatic recognition and inversion interpretation under various clutter interference. A large number of field experiments on concrete detection in Yichang Three Gorges dam are carried out. The experimental results show that the spotlight scanning function of phased array radar has been realized, the penetration depth is greater than 1.5m and the resolution is higher than that of ordinary radar.Editing: hfy
