Over the last months it has become clear that the Covid-19 pandemic has a major impact on our lives and businesses. For many organizations and individuals the pandemic has negative consequences. Thanks to several government support programs, many entrepreneurs were able to (partly) compensate the negative consequences. And some were even able to successfully change their business models into new opportunities!

Join our webinar on Tuesday November 24th (13.00-14:30) and get inspired by the success stories of three entrepreneurs. In this webinar we will also address to what extent the government support programs have helped companies and inform you about the newest resources

  • Harry Hurkens: BDO
  • Jos Willemsen: Rabobank
