Entrepreneurs & Own Business

The Netherlands has traditionally been a country of entrepreneurs. Start-up companies are the engine of our economy and a source of innovation and job creation. As such, they stimulate economic growth.
Refugees are entrepreneurial and motivating refugees to start an own business is highly supported by the Dutch Government.
