Expand abroad event: destination the Netherlands

Dutchify hosts expand abroad in Helsinki

by dutchify

We are happy to announce the first edition Expand Abroad event. Dutchify will host this first edition in Helsinki Finland on the 28th of February. Nick de Bruijn our CEO will talk about the challenges of expansion abroad. During the event, Nick is analyzing the product of a Finish company. The goal is to inform companies on a market entry strategy for the Netherlands. Are you coming too?

The event host is Maria01 which you can find in an old hospital campus that dates back to the 1800s. “Marian Sairaala” (Maria’s hospital) was the first and also the oldest hospital in Helsinki. The hospital was also the first in the Nordics to hire the first female doctor. Maria01’s community is excellent for start-ups: going from nothing to something. Maria 01 identified the problem of not having a community targeted to startups. They solved it by offering more than a “co-working space” in Helsinki.
