‘It is entrepreneurs who inspire me: I love their energy and their drive to make a positive change! Not only do they make beautiful (environmentally friendly) products, but they also employ people and sponsor other initiatives like sport clubs.
I work at the Netherlands Enterprise Agency (Rijksdienst voor Ondernemend Nederland) and I help companies get funded. But the assistance that my colleagues and I offer entrepreneurs goes beyond money. We can connect them to business partners, offer information that will guide them towards commercial success and help them to make an impact!’
