Arion launches entrepreneurs platform NLGroeit in cooperation with Queen Máxima
At the Van Nelle factory, located in Rotterdam, the introduction of the entrepreneurs platform NLGroeit took place last Wednesday. Queen Máxima gave the official signal to launch the platform. Erik Joosten, founder and CEO of ARION, represented the Dutch growth companies during this formal moment.
NLGroeit is a national program that is committed to helping small and medium-sized enterprises (SME’s) achieving growth. As Queen Máxima emphasized during her speech, entrepreneurship in the Netherlands is flourishing. There is an increasing number of start-ups and young companies. However, the number of SME’s achieving actual growth is diminishing. NLGroeit is initiated by the Ministry of Economic Affairs, the Chamber of Commerce and NLevator. The platform connects entrepreneurs with like-minded entrepreneurs, coaches and mentors who can help them in taking the next step in their growth process.
“ARION has been asked to participate in NLGroeit as a representative SME and we are proud of it!”, says Erik Joosten. “This shows ARION is on the right track and we consider this a new height after Prime Minister Rutte honored our company by visiting us last year.”
