Netherlands Enterprise Agency (RVO)
Business partner scan
Mandatory co-financing?

A business partner scan offers entrepreneurs who want to do business internationally an overview of possible business partners, such as agents, distributors, production partners, franchisees and dealers. You will have a personal meeting with a regional expert from the RVO beforehand. This helps you to clarify your questions. This introductory meeting also determines whether a business partner scan can be performed. If this is the case, the embassy in the country concerned will seek relevant contacts with you. After the introductory meeting, you can instruct the regional expert to perform the scan. You pay a personal contribution of €200 (without personal introduction) or €500 (with personal introduction).
