Synergy between eMudhra and The Hague
One of the key deciding factors for establishing eMudhra’s European headquarters in The Hague is the fact that the city is very internationally oriented and that it has established itself as a major hub for cyber security in Europe. This is demonstrated by the presence of Europol’s European Cybercrime Centre (EC3), the NATO Communications and Information Agency, the Dutch cybersecurity, intelligence and security agencies as well as a wide range of cyber security businesses. In addition, the city is also home to The Hague Security Delta (HSD), the leading security cluster in Europe. All this has been a strong argument in favor of choosing The Hague.
“eMudhra has recently set up their European Headquarters in The Hague to offer trust services, cyber security and artificial intelligence solutions to customers in the European Union. eMudhra was attracted to The Hague because of its reputation in promoting companies focused on cyber security. eMudhra thanks The Hague Business Agency for the continued support it has received in helping set up its first presence in the European Union.”, said Mr. Kaushik Srinivasan, Senior Vice President of eMudhra.
Growth through effective collaborations and partnerships
The Hague Business Agency (THBA), a Foreign Investment Agency of the Municipality of The Hague, is responsible for attracting foreign investments to the city. THBA has assisted eMudhra, by providing an exclusive tailor-made business program, which included a “red carpet” fact-finding trip (FFT) and meetings with local government officials and stakeholders in the IT & Security ecosystem.
THBA has explained the benefits of setting up in The Hague, where there is a vast network of cyber security companies and government and knowledge institutions that are forming a solid cluster, working together on innovative cyber security solutions and knowledge development. All of the major partners are based in The Hague, which made it an obvious choice for settling in the city. THBA also worked in close collaboration with InnovationQuarter, leading to a successful completion of this project.
‘’After an expansion trajectory of almost three years, I am very proud to welcome eMudhra to the city of The Hague. I believe that The Hague’s cyber security ecosystem provides eMudhra with the right elements to successfully kick-start their European operations.’’ says Anesh Kisoen, International Business Advisor-India at The Hague Business Agency.

The Hague is, with over 500.00 inhabitants, the 3rd largest city in The Netherlands. It is also the seat of the Dutch government, and the home town of the Dutch Royal family. The Hague is widely recognized as the city of peace and justice. The Hague regularly features in the world news because international legal cases are tried in the many courts and tribunals, such as the International Court of Justice and the International Criminal Court. But The Hague is more than courts, tribunals and palaces. The special status of the city draws many government leaders, knowledge institutions, non-profit organisations, businesses and students. Here, they work together, share their knowledge and develop new ideas on creating a better, safer or more just world. They do so, using the latest technology, for example in the fields of cybersecurity for which The Hague is a true ‘hub’.
But The Hague is not just a place for work. The Hague combines the benefits of a cosmopolitan city with the charm of a small town. A distinctive quality of life that ranks in the very top of international surveys. No matter where you are in the city, you are never far away from the 11-kilometre stretch of beach. The ideal place to take a break from life’s hustle and bustle and to find inspiration for new ideas.
