World Trade Center Eindhoven-“Serving the Southern Netherlands”
Opportunities in (international) business!
World Trade Center Eindhoven is a member of the World Trade Centers Association (WTCA). The motto of the WTCA (New York, 1970) is “We grow trade” and its primary purpose is to encourage international business development amongst its members and affiliated organisations.
The WTCA is a non-profit organisation, which is politically independent and active in more than 100 countries. A World Trade Center is generally located in a building in which organisations operate from temporary or permanent offices, with extensive services and facilities for tenants and users. More than 330 WTCs exist worldwide, of which 116 are located in Europe.
WTC•Eindhoven offers the business community in the South East Netherlands access to a global network that comprises a staggering 750,000 organisations and companies. Additionally, WTC•Eindhoven actively represents and presents the region within the WTCA in order to strengthen the area’s position internationally.
WTC•Eindhoven wants to clearly promote and make available the added value of the international WTC formula to regional businesses. This is achieved through a digital portal and various facilities offered by WTC•Eindhoven: offices and services, trade information and trade missions.
WTC•Eindhoven recently introduced ‘International Industrials’ as a focused networking facility for promoting international business. This platform for international business development focuses on industrial companies in the Brainport region and the adjoining areas.
Entrepreneurs share their expertise and information about doing business internationally via Best Practices.
What crucial aspects should I consider if I want to start a business activity in Belgium? And what is different in Germany? What can we learn from the mistakes made by fellow entrepreneurs? How have I arranged financing? How should I tackle language and culture differences? How does the market operate? These and other issues are analysed in detail in interactive sessions.
World Trade Center Eindhoven is one of eleven World Trade Centers in the Netherlands. The WTCs meet every quarter in order to discuss initiatives for reinforcing joint activities and communication and further positioning and strengthening of the brand name. The activities and facilities of the WTCs in the Netherlands are promoted via a shared website.
Entrepreneurs can participate in WTC•Eindhoven as a member of the WTC•E Business Society network, WTC•E Young Professionals for young entrepreneurial professionals, or the International Industrials network, which is a platform specifically for SME businesses.
