DutchCham, the Association of Dutch Business people (ADB) and the Embassy of the Kingdom of the Netherlands have joined forces to organize a series of interactive events under the name Startup and SME Academy. With the Academy, DutchCham, ADB and the Embassy strive to consolidate their efforts to provide relevant content and networking opportunities for the Dutch professional Startup and Small and Medium-sized Enterprises (SME) community in Singapore and for local stakeholders keen on working together with Dutch Startups and SME’s.
The events will be aimed at sharing knowledge and experience as well as inspiring entrepreneurs and SME’s to potentially enhance their business. There will be rotating lunch and evening sessions.
Lunch sessions are focused on sharing knowledge and experience. Each session will be led by one or more experts regarding a particular topic with plenty of time for questions, discussion and networking.
Evening sessions are focused on networking, inspiring and pitching. During each session one or more speakers will share their knowledge and experience about a specific topic, industry or business skill. Attendees will also have the possibility to pitch a business idea after the speaker (max. 1 min) and receive on the spot feedback. At the end of the evening there will be plenty of opportunities to network during the drinks.
