Kickoff & Speeddates DGGF for Startups

On March 28 (14:30-17:30 h), the Dutch Good Growth Fund for Startups will have its kickoff, at Impact Hub Amsterdam! 

The kickoff will consist of an introduction to the fund, inspiring talks by entrepreneurs and network drinks. 

During the kickoff we will also host straightforward speeddates with the investmentmanagers where you can easily find out whether you should apply for DGGF Startup. All entrepreneurs operating in emerging markets are warmly invited to join! 

NB: next to the speeddates during the kickoff, other speeddate sessions will be held in Eindhoven (April 6), Wageningen (April 20) and Rotterdam (May 11).

What is DGGF for Startups?
It is an instrument by the Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs to help finance Dutch enterprises operating in certain African, Asian, Latin American or Eastern European countries (check to find out which). It offers support in terms of loans (up to EUR 2 mln for non-innovative and 4 mln for innovative businesses) and technical assistance. It can be a possibility for entrepreneurs for whom getting finance is often difficult due to the risky contexts where they operate. The instrument is an addition to the regular Dutch Good Growth Fund.
