Dutch companies can be found all over the world, we facilitate growth and create jobs. Do you want to be part of this, but not capable of achieving this on your own? This is your chance!

Each year, the Oranje Handelsmissiefonds helps 10 SME’s achieve their international ambitions. Thanks to our international network, knowledge and experience, we can help your company successfully enter new foreign markets.

International trade facilitation

The Oranje Handelsmissiefonds is an initiative by ING, KLM, MKB-Nederland and the Dutch Ministry of Foreign affairs in collaboration with the Netherlands Enterprise Agency. The succession of the Dutch queen Beatrix by her son Willem Alexander on april 30th 2013 has been the ultimate moment for startups to combine their knowledge and experience and to emphasise the importance of international trade for the Netherlands.
