MADE IN AMSTERDAM
Originally a Dutch start-up, the hotel booking site arranges 800,000 room nights per day on behalf of both leisure and business travelers. Established in 1996, it now maintains its global headquarters in the city where it all began.
A merger of three Dutch start-ups, this gaming studio was snapped up by Sony in 2005. Killzone Shadow Fall made more than $1 million and was a launch title for Playstation 4 last year.
