MDBC: Day of the Entrepreneur

November 18, 2021 @ 1:30 pm - 4:30 pm

Dear MDBC members,

In the Netherlands, the third Friday of November marks the Day of the Entrepreneur (“Dag van de Ondernemer”, or DVDO).  Organized by MKB – Nederland (the Dutch SME Corporation) since 2016, and in conjunction with the Global Entrepreneurship Week, this day celebrates the courage and perseverance of Entrepreneurs and SMEs.  Everyone is encouraged to participate in this campaign, including cabinet members, and to give support to all of the entrepreneurs within their network.  In 2018, one of the first dedicated DVDO activities outside the Netherlands took place when MDBC joined the campaign by organizing a DVDO event in Malaysia, which we did again in 2019.

Save the Date!   On Thursday 18 November, MDBC, in close partnership with the Netherlands Embassy, would (especially) like to invite the SMEs and Entrepreneurs from the MDBC community for a special DVDO day.  This is more than your long – awaited opportunity for a live networking event; five major MDBC partners and service providers will be on hand to provide business solution tools and valuable information, as well as offers to support your entrepreneurship.  Keep an eye out for the launch of the MDBC 25th anniversary edition of our Innovation & Sustainability Awards (MISA) 2021 / 22.
