The Society of Suriname was a Dutch private company profiting from the management of the Dutch colony of Suriname. The participants were the city of Amsterdam, the family Van Aerssen van Sommelsdijck and the West India Company, although every citizen from the Dutch Republic was allowed to trade with Suriname. The society ceased to exist as of 1795.
