Looking to follow in the footsteps of EMA? Ready to expand or (re)locate your business to a leading life science cluster? Or are you interested in collaborating with the innovative Dutch? InnovationQuarter welcomes you to West Holland. Get in touch and find out how we can assist!


InnovationQuarter is a private organization, funded by various governmental partners. We have a dedicated team in place to assist you – free of charge – on (re)locating and expanding your life sciences & health business to West Holland.

We provide tailor-made services and connect you with key networks, relevant organisations, international corporates, incubators, accelerators and lab & test facilities in this unique delta region. Let’s meet and chat!

Information is the first step to decide setting-up your business in the Netherlands. We can provide information on a variety of topics, like a market scan, country benchmarks, investment climate & tax incentives, research strengths, incubators & accelerators and sector specific questions.

Do you have all the information you need? We take you on an exploratory visit to experience first-hand why West Holland is the best place. We set up a program and help you find a suitable location for your business, housing for you and/or your staff and introduce you to our networks.

We ensure a ‘soft landing’ for you in West Holland by providing useful introductions throughout our tailor-made know-how and key networks. We connect you to service providers for e.g. visa & permits, staff recruitment and incorporation. Additionally, we have an extensive network of investors, innovative entrepreneurs and companies, knowledge institutes, and government to which we can connect you to explore opportunities for collaboration.

Once you’ve decided setting-up in West Holland, we make your arrival public in a (joint) media approach and assure you’ll get invited to interesting (business) events in our region. Our services continue once you are here. Our Account Manager will visit you regularly to see if there are any additional requirements and to stay-updated on how your company is succeeding. In case of expansion or reduction, we are there to help as well.
