Side Event: From A to aBroad: the event for expanding your startup globally – RVO

December 6, 2018, 12:30 - 16:45

Looking for ways to expand your startup business abroad? If you could do with some advice, be sure to attend From A to aBroad. Government experts will share local insight into potential markets. Join us at this exciting event for businesses just like yours!

International expansion can be a vital part of growing your Dutch startup business. However, the process can be tricky. As with any new venture, it is essential to plot a course before setting sail. This event is a great starting point.

The Dutch government and its partners have a lot to offer when it comes to helping startups and scale-ups expand abroad. With the help of our global embassy network, we can assist you in almost any country. During From A to aBroad, you will learn how the Netherlands Enterprise Agency (RVO.nl) can help you find the right coaching and financial and legal advice. Our experts will also point out available funding programmes for startups. Additionally, they will bring up trade missions to the world’s biggest startup events. And that’s just the start.

Whether you are a startup looking for information about foreign markets or a scale-up that’s preparing for expansion, this event will help you decide on your next move towards successful international expansion.

What can you expect?
During the programme, parallel sessions feature expert presentations about identifying markets and preparing for your market launch. Of course, there’s also plenty of room for your questions. Lunch is on us and we will conclude the event with drinks, where you will have the opportunity to meet other startups and scale-ups. Alternatively, you can chat with our advisors. They will be happy to discuss your international ambitions with you.
