Find the right talent
The Investor Relations (IR)Programme is here to help your company find the talent with the skills you need for your operations. We make sure any international employees have a soft landing in The Netherlands, by assisting with visas and working permits, providing cross-cultural advice and linking to international schools.
Get in touch with relevant parties
The IR Programme can introduce you to Dutch government organisations at the national, regional and local levels. We can bring you into contact with commercial service providers, such as consultants, agents, lawyers, and a wide variety of regional, national and international networks that are relevant to your company.
Be introduced to networks
With the IR Programme, you can gain access to dozens of national and regional events organised each year, ranging from seminars and conferences to networking dinners, roundtable sessions and individual update meetings with representatives from the
Dutch government. We will even help you make individual arrangements for tailor-made support and advice.
Get access to public-private partnerships
Our IR Programme is equipped to provide guidance on the network of public-private partnerships that flourish in the Netherlands. For example, we can provide insight into R&D incentives and direction on partnerships to maximise incentives. We also help link education, government and business for assistance in everything from pooling talent to addressing the need for technical skills.
Get access to government funding (‘subsidie’)
The IR Programme helps execute new investment and development projects, find and apply for subsidies, and assist expanding companies in many other ways. If you have any questions, our door is always open.
Reach out for governmental decision makers
The IR Programme serves as a channel through which you can share your views and experiences concerning the investment climate in the Netherlands with the Dutch government. We collect your feedback, submit it to relevant government departments and use it as input for governmental decision-making.
Promote your company’s presence through benchmarking
The IR Programme is a valuable partner to make your business case successful. We provide tools and input for cost and location benchmarking, help recruit talent and promote your company’s presence in The Netherlands to increase company recognition and brand awareness.
