Investor Development

Our Investor Development program ensures that, once a foreign company has settled in Flevoland, the relationship is maintained on a regular basis. We are more than happy to introduce you to the right people in our network, such as Dutch authorities, education and knowledge institutes and commercial partners. 

We can assist you with any of the following and can arrange tailor made support and advice:

  • Information on the many aspects of the Dutch investment climate (e.g. legislation, regulations, taxes)
  • Information on and assistance in obtaining visas and work permits
  • Information and advice on, and assistance in developments and new investment projects
  • Access to local, regional, national and international networks
  • Introductions to government authorities (municipal, provincial and national) and other public organizations
  • Introductions to commercial service providers, such as consultants, agents, lawyers and recruitment & selection agencies
  • Support in resolving bottlenecks in the Dutch investment climate
  • Information and advice on and assistance in finding and applying for subsidies and other incentives
  • Organization of various events (network meetings, round-table meetings, network dinners)
