Amsterdam is a real hustler’s city. The city began as nothing but a port and a swamp, and then flourished and grew into the major European capital city she is today.
The city’s core has always maintained an almost uncharacteristically entrepreneurial spirit that fuelled business, innovation, design, and education to levels that now rival some of the most advanced economies of the world. A spirit that stood (and remains) at odds with a relaxed, “enjoy life” vibe that still runs through most Amsterdammers veins.
As an entrepreneur in Amsterdam I am humbled by her rich culture, emboldened by her rebellious history, and am nourished by her joie de vivre, her unique laissez-faire spirit.
I couldn’t think of a better place to live, work, and love.
Bedankt, Amsterdam. Voor alles.
(Thanks Amsterdam. For everything.)
