Amsterdam As The Next City You Want To Live In
“Why Silicon Valley is successful,
is you have a good environment for investment,
for risk-taking and there’s an infrastructure to do it.
Here (in Amsterdam) what you have are some similarities
but you also have a place that people want to live in.”
Maarten Plesman, VP EMEA for Silicon Valley’s Revinate
