The town where John Lennon's first guitar was made is located in the province of North Holland. Alkmaar is a popular tourist destination known for its traditional cheese market and its wealth of culture. A village that grew into a town, Alkmaar was granted its city rights in 1254, so it's an historian's dream town where its old area consists of some of the oldest "polders" (low-lying land reclaimed protected by dykes) in the world. Intact medieval buildings beg to be gawked at and the tall tower of the Grote of Sint-Laurenskerk is where many locals like to tie the knot (get married). The summer months are when the traditional cheese market happens and crowds gather in hungry anticipation of gorging on local cheeses. To really get into the scene it's necessary to check out Alkmaar's 399 registered national heritage sites that mainly sit along the city's old canals. Apart from the historical aspects of the town, curious souls also check out the "red light" district at Achterdam. Alkmaar is not really a tech hub per se, but it does have its fair share of innovative minds meandering its streets or hanging out in coworking venues.
The Netherlands has its' promising startup hub happening in Amsterdam, as it was named the best European Tech City to work in by a recent tech study. There are actually 578 international ICT companies with offices in Amsterdam and many of them are always on the lookout for talented people. Markets vary from cryptocurrency to online food ordering services. Another benefit is the fact that nearly everyone speaks English, so there is definitely no language barrier to get over and blending in is easy. The Netherlands offers support and resources for those wishing to work independently or to get a fledgling startup soaring.
Coworking venues are one more step in the ecosystem that is creating space for out-of-the-box thinkers to get together in collaborative bliss in a city offering a low-cost of living, plenty of culture and in the town of Alkmaar, a National Beer Museum "De Boom" to check out after work hours.
