The Dutch invented Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, the CD, and the DVD. The Netherlands has a rich history of innovation and is ranked No. 4 on the Global Innovation Index.

The Netherlands, as one of the most wired countries in the world, is the hotspot for leading information and communications technology companies. Holland’s state-of-the-art, 100% digital, advanced fiber-optic network and competitive business climate support a strong community of startups and global IT companies.
