Doing successful business in Germany? We are here to help!

The municipality of The Hague is working together with the German-Dutch chamber of trade for a guidance program for SMEs in The Hague who see opportunities in Germany despite, or because of the corona crisis.

Because of previous success, the Municipality of The Hague is also organizing an intensive coaching program in 2020, together with the German-Dutch Chamber of Commerce (DNHK), for SMEs wishing to expand their sales market to our eastern neighbors. Please note: there are only six places available for the route this year.

The guidance process is free of charge for the participants, apart from some specific activities such as (foreign) exhibition visits, and is open to entrepreneurs from all sectors based in The Hague. Each participant will works out a specific strategy for the German market with an DNHK export expert. In addition to this specific support, participants receive training on manners and culture and improve their knowledge of the German language. Workshops on corporate law, labor law and tax components in doing business in Germany are also part of the program. Finally, during the project, each participant will have access to a large German-Dutch network (1,500 members) and interesting network events in the Netherlands and Germany. The counseling process runs from the 1st of July to the end of 2020 and takes about 2 to 3 half days of time per month.
