TopDutch is the internationally-focused regional economic brand for the Northern Netherlands, targeting innovative international companies considering setting up facilities in the northern provinces of Groningen, Drenthe and Friesland – the “top Dutch” region.
Originally founded in 2017, the organization recently relaunched with a new team and closer alignment with the Investment and Development Agency for the Northern Netherlands (NOM).
TopDutch’s main pitch to companies from abroad is that the north is a great place to invest in. Brimming with talented students and young professionals, a thriving business climate and start-up scene, and strong talent development initiatives, TopDutch recognises that our region is an ideal destination for international businesses to grow further and bring more jobs to the Netherlands.
The organization also shines the spotlight on local talent, sharing the stories of smart innovators, entrepreneurs and researchers alike making a name for themselves locally and around the world.
In recognition of TopDutch’s financial support for The Northern Times, we will be adding a new tagline to our homepage and a banner with a link to TopDutch’s site, and introducing a special news section called “Rising Stars in the TopDutch Region”, where we will feature stories about promising companies and influential sectors in the northern provinces, including in-depth interviews with businesses in the provinces Groningen, Drenthe and Friesland.
Keep an eye out for our upcoming stories about the circular economy and water technology sectors in Friesland, among many more over the course of the coming year.
