@marckohlbrugge Thanks Marc.

I think it was an advantage. Holland is big enough to do a serious test run, and small enough to get things done -- like PR and licensing deals (which would be much more complicated in bigger countries). Sometimes as a startup I think it's nice to be a big fish in a small pond.

I'd say the most important thing is: if people tell you 'no', you just keep trying. Also, it's easier to start small and trade up, with whatever you're doing.
