Abstract

The Dutch East India Company, VOC, was founded in 1602 by the amalgamation, under government pressure, of various overseas trade companies. It was a decentralized company with branches in six important cities in the Netherlands. Each of these branches had its own administration, warehouses and shipyards. The central direction of the company consisted of a board of 17 directors, 8 of whom were appointed by the City of Amsterdam.
