Support with your international ambitions

Doing business without borders

Doing business across borders means growth, but it also involves a lot. It brings new challenges. Challenges you do not yet know about, because the focus has been mainly on your products and/or services. What laws and regulations do I need to take into account? Are there any incentives I can make use of? How do I find the right partners? What about the culture in that country? And what about taxes? You will achieve a lot more if you look into all this.

QUESTIONS ABOUT DOING BUSINESS ACROSS BORDERS?

We are here to help

We offer support to companies that want to expand their business internationally, but also to companies that have already been active on the international market.

Matchmaking

A good business network is of vital importance for entrepreneurs. When you enter a new market, it is not always easy to find your way to the right contacts. We can help.

Trade missions

We offer you the opportunity to participate in trade missions. During these trips, you will meet potential partners and/or customers and build your own network in the region you want to do business in.

Export promotion

We help you gain insight into the export process and put you in touch with our network of local partners. They can tell you everything about the laws and regulations, taxes, interesting partners, promising sectors and branch organisations.

Country information

Doing business in another country also means that it is important to be aware of the culture and customs in that country. If you familiarise yourself with the local culture, customs and regulations, you will achieve much more. We can help you with this by giving you access to interesting information on countries.
