ONL bring needed support to Dutch businesses as the first organization in the Netherlands to offer free access during this crisis
Barcelona, Spain (May 7, 2020) – ONL voor Ondernemers announces partnership with Opportunity Network, the private business platform for CEOs/C-Level executives and investors, to bring free access to Dutch business leaders.
This move comes from a collaborative effort to keep Dutch businesses operating and prevent jobs from being lost during the COVID-19 crisis.
ONL voor Ondernemers, the Dutch business organization focused on amplifying the country’s entrepreneurial community, believes that the partnership will help member companies survive the crisis. Access to global trade partners, investors and suppliers could be the difference-maker for these companies in a post-pandemic economic fallout.
Supporting Dutch Business Leaders
“The fact that the partnership with Opportunity Network allows us to offer Dutch entrepreneurs free access to a global network, is very important to us,” shares Hans Biesheuvel, Co-Founder of ONL. “We believe by working together we can really help and support the Dutch entrepreneurs in surviving this particular crisis and kickstart the economy once things calm down.”
Opportunity Network currently hosts 28,000+ CEOs/C-Level executives and investors across 50+ industries. These members use the platform to connect to commercial, fundraising, investing, supply chain, as well as M&A deals with a total valuation of $280B.
“Once the dust settles we want to look back and know that we have done anything in our power to help out the entrepreneurs,” explains Titia Westra van Holthe, Opportunity Network’s Managing Director of Europe, in a podcast discussion for ONL (below). “The best way for us to do that is by offering them access to the network.”
ONL will be joining the networks’ 75+ trusted partners. From leading banks to trade associations, the list includes ABN Amro, Credit Suisse, YPO, BBVA, and more. As a result, Opportunity Network maintains a secure environment for business leaders looking to connect to viable deals and trustworthy counterparts.
Dutch business leaders already on the platform have shared their successes:
“We made a connection within 72 hours of joining Opportunity Network which continues to be an ongoing partnership.”
“Every member is vetted by a financial institution before being granted access to the platform. We can discuss business in a safe and trustworthy manner.”
