March 20, 1602: The Dutch East India Company is founded.    The Dutch East India Company (Vereenigde Oost-indische Compagnie) was founded through the sponsorship of the Dutch government, who granted it a monopoly over trade in the East Indies through a charter that was set to expire after twenty-one years. The company could, through this charter, build forts and conduct military and diplomatic activities in the area, which would help to protect and direct Dutch trade in the East Indies

The Dutch East India Co. was richer and more powerful compared to the English East India Co., which resulted in Dutch East India Co. becoming dominant over Asian trade routes.
