Why the ‘1602’ name?

In 1602 the Dutch East India Company
(Verenigde Oost-Indische
Compagnie or VOC) was
established and made history with
the world’s first IPO.  With the
trading of negotiable shares on the
also newly established Amsterdam
Stock Exchange, 1602 is also
considered the year of the world’s
first public company.

To us 1602 symbolizes entrepreneurship,
creativity, determination and result
orientation.
