What are NL Business Hubs?
NL Business Hubs support Dutch companies as they enter new foreign markets by providing a strong local business and community network. They know the market and know where opportunities lie. NL Business Hubs work closely with Dutch Embassies, Consulate Generals and local governments, which allows them to help Dutch entrepreneurs, even in difficult times. NL Business Hubs in collaboration with (local) partners offer services including market exploration, networking events, (online) workshops, legal services and matchmaking services.
Our ambition is to support Dutch entrepreneurs in about 40 Cities of Opportunity worldwide through NL Business Hubs. In collaboration with local Business Councils, we are working hard to build this NL Business Hub network. Below you will find an overview of all NL Business Hubs worldwide, broken down by region.
