Internationalization is the Key Driver of the Dutch Economy!

Entrepreneurs need new & innovative strategic formulas for internationalization

Dutch Council for International Business (DCIB) is a knowledge and business platform focused on international business development based on innovative formulas and smart solutions. We assist entrepreneurs and (governmental) organizations with tailored and performance driven internationalization strategies and business innovation. Our aim is to enable entrepreneurs, across sectors and across the world, to operate on the basis of sustainable (international) business models and self-sustaining global value chains. Among others, we improve the connectivity and global reach of our clients through:

  • Strategic alliances enabling entrepreneurs to materialize sector specific business opportunities in different countries around the world;
  • Access to a global community of “Connecting Entrepreneurs” and organizations;
  • International business development services enabling your company to capture opportunities and to make sound business decisions.

The Netherlands is the 4th most competitive and one of the most innovative countries in the world. The Dutch SME sector is the driving and innovation engine of the Dutch economy. However the demographics of the Dutch SME sector are changing; the number of entreprises is increasing but the average size of SME's is decreasing and this development will reduce the abilities to explore and operate on international markets individually. DCIB therefore has developed an innovative formula for internationalization and business operations on foreign markets through Strategic Alliances. The DCIB Strategic Alliances are sector-specific and structured to create enhanced value propositions to capture business opportunities in targeted markets. In addition DCIB is stimulating innovation, knowledge valorization, joint investments and joint partnerships between entrepreneurs from all over the world.
DCIB also supports foreign companies in the process of entering and doing business in The Netherlands, finding local business partners and establishment of local operations.
The DCIB model for Strategic Alliances based Internationalization is presented in the model below.
