Business models need regular overhaul. Digitalisation and sustainable entrepreneurship? Definitely! But how? We offer the right expertise and tools that you can start using immediately.

Setting up a business in the Netherlands

It is fairly easy to start a business, you need to register it at the Dutch Chamber of Commerce (KVK) and sign up for Dutch taxes. Of course, you should first thoroughly analyse the market you want to enter. And a proper business plan is essential if you are looking for investors.

We are firmly committed to coaching and training (regular) start-ups. But there are also special programs for innovative start-ups. For a start-up, an international approach, mindset and access to capital are essential. A program on a regional scale helps you grow and ensures that you are not alone.
