WHAT WE DO

Connecting entrepreneurs, large enterprises, academia, and select professionals, with Silicon Valley.

Silicon Valley has been and continues to be one of the world’s most important centers of innovation and technology disruption. Given the Valley’s nearly unique set of assets―the presence of technology giants, world-class universities, abundant venture capital, and a hypercompetitive yet collaborative culture that celebrates both risk and failure―the Northern California region’s recipe for innovation has rarely been replicated.

We organize social events & group missions, provide pro bono support to visiting and relocating entrepreneurs, and facilitate knowledge exchange―bridging Silicon Valley and the Netherlands. Please note: social events are space-limited, and therefore priority is given to entrepreneurial talent and contributing partners & individuals. |
