  • A scaling up of the support for non-Dutch business people
  • The creation of more jobs in the Netherlands by enterprises owned by non-Dutch business people
  • To provide the best opportunities within the Netherlands for all incoming international entrepreneurs
  • To build a profile of the Netherlands worldwide as being exceptionally welcoming for entrepreneurs, especially those from outside of the EU
