I have worked 16 years continuously to develop and introduce the Groasis Ecological Water Saving Technology. Innovation takes a long time and is very expensive. For this beautiful project, our government rewarded us as a National Icon. Together with 6 others, we are allowed to use this title. However, due to the inadequate financing structure for innovative companies in the Netherlands, a number of National Icons have already fallen into foreign hands. We also know many other beautiful companies of genius entrepreneurs who could have meant a lot for the Netherlands, but they were also sold abroad, such as Booking.com. Sometimes it seems like the Netherlands is spreading its business jewellery like Hansel and Gretel spread their bread crumbs.
