Inclusive city

Start your business in the inclusive city of Rotterdam

We, Rotterdammers, are proud of our city. Closely collaborating with the municipality, key business industries and research institutes, we shape our resilient, sustainable, innovative, and inclusive city.

With our famed make it happen mentality and the focus on equality, diversity and inclusion, Rotterdam is the ideal place for entrepreneurs and organisers of conferences who dare to create and drive forward positive change. Our innovative city is home to over 170 nationalities and together we focus on building a sustainable urban future. The Dutch being the best non-native English speakers contributes to our open mentality and inclusiveness and will make you feel at home easily. 

Rotterdam, building towards a resilient city

Rotterdam has ambitious plans to fully transform into a resilient city through digitalisation, with the IT Campus Rotterdam playing a significant role. A 5G network is being installed throughout our city and the Digital City Programme launches Rotterdam’s twin, a digital platform in 2022. Rotterdam brings many resources to build the best possible cyber security for the city and the port (FERM).
