Venture capital investments in the Netherlands 2007-2019, by sector

In 2019, biotechnology and healthcare overtook IT as the most common business sector for venture capital investments in the Netherlands. Now reaching a value of nearly 245 million euros, investments into health and biotech were almost twice as high as early investments into IT, and significantly higher than those found in many other business segments in the Netherlands. Venture capital mostly refers to money invested into young companies that are not listed on the stock exchange. Start-up investments are the most known part of this, but this can also include (angel) seed investments or early stage ventures. Typically, Amsterdam is considered to have a smaller start-up scene than other European capital cities. An example of a Dutch start-up company that received a large investment (100 million euros) in 2017 was online supermarket Picnic.
