For the first time, the Holland Expat Center organises a meeting next Saturday, May 13th, about starting your own business. During ‘Starting a business in The Netherlands’, several speakers will be giving information about starting your own business or start-up.



This event arose from the demand of expats themselves. “A lot of expats come in here for more information about starting their own business. It takes a lot of work, so we have invited several speakers who can each give information within their own field”, says Marleen Strategier from the Holland Expat Center. Hans Litjens and Ad Scheepers from Chamber of Commerce will talk about what you have to do for your own business and how the Chamber of Commerce could help you with that. Victoria Martinez, Eindhoven’s City Startup Officer, will be giving information for and about start-ups and Jorrit van Dijk, account manager SMEs at the Rabobank Eindhoven-Veldhoven, will explain the financial aspects.

If the event turns out to be successful, it will return annually. “We’ll see how it goes, but we’d like to organise it every year. After Saturday we are also going to see if we can invite more or different speakers then.”

‘Starting a business in The Netherlands’ takes place on Saturday, May 13th, from 10 am to 12 am in the Holiday Inn Eindhoven. It is accessible to all and registration is possible on the website or on the Facebook page.
