The Netherlands Water Partnership (NWP) and Atradius Dutch State Business (DSB) will host a knowledge session on financing export transactions on 17 November. The session will focus on Atradius DSB’s financing instruments that are available to Dutch small and medium sized enterprises (SMEs) in the water sector. This session will be held in Dutch.
As an SME, it can be hard to access the right financing instruments to realise your export ambitions. Atradius DSB offers instruments such as export financing and export credit insurance to de-risk trade and investments in international markets. Dutch SMEs in the water sector can access these instruments.
To shed light on these possibilities, we organise a practical knowledge session on the different financing options available to the water sector and related practicalities such as relevant criteria and application processes. There will be sufficient time to share experiences amongst each other, ask questions and hold a discussion on this topic with representatives from Atradius DSB.
Who should register?
The session focuses on entrepreneurs and organisations that have experience with exporting products, equipment or solutions, or have export ambitions on the short and/or mid-term.
To ensure an interactive session, there will be a maximum of 15 participants. Therefore, we advise to register as soon as possible by sending an email to Josephine Damstra at email@example.com.
