‘Center of the Network Economy’

The strength of Amersfoort is the power of collaborating and connecting. It’s no coincidence that Amersfoort is called the 'Center of the Network Economy'.

Best city to live and work in

Intermediair Magazine declared Amersfoort one of the best cities to live and work in. Over here you can easily combine your career with caring for your family and private life.

Amersfoort gets involved with you

Amersfoort invests a lot in relations with business people. We cherish companies and help them relocate. For Michiel Muller, the founder of Picnic, it was essential for Amersfoort to show involvement: “Within a day we had a sit-down with five officials”.

This type of cooperation between business, knowledge institutions, and the authorities, is unique. No matter how large or small your company is, the advantages of it will always be available to you. We get involved and love to help you out, so you can do what you know best: business!

This is who’s leading the way!

Amersfoort is a city blessed with special entrepreneurs. Some are in the liberal professions, others lead big corporations. What they have in common is their drive to develop new endeavours.

And their unconditional love for the city. It is no coincidence that prestigious companies like Arcadis, Ikea, FrieslandCampina, Prenatal, and Kees Smit established themselves in Amersfoort.
