How would the performance of the business I invest in impact the renewal of my resident permit of the Netherlands?

I am considering investing 1.25 million euros in an IT business located in Amsterdam and applying a resident permit. I understand that the initial permit is valid for three years. When I apply for renewal, will the performance of the business be taken into consideration? What are the requirements?

    An "investor" resident permit can be extended regardless of the performance of the business, except when: the investment of at least 1.25 million euros has been withdrawn; or the investment does not have added value for the Dutch economy in the view of the Netherlands Enterprise Agency (RVO); or the holder of the resident permit is involved with transactions that are deemed suspicious by the Financial Intelligence Unit - Netherlands
