Welcome to the Netherlands, the

world’s leading food&agri ecosystem

Landing in the Netherlands

Join the Dutch Agri-Food

innovation hub

The “Landing in the Netherlands” program offers innovative Food & Agri ventures from around the world a chance to get a foot in the door in the Dutch ecosystem, one of the leading innovation hubs for Food&Agri worldwide.

With the support of Foodvalley, we offer international ventures the chance to collaborate with Dutch partners and accelerate their scaling. Here’s how:


Identify your scaling priorities

A deep discussion on the status of the company, framed on the Art of Scaling methodology. Based on data from a self-assessment survey, competitor intelligence analysis, and a leadership survey, our experts will help you assess your scaling needs.

Design and execute your scaling plan

On each of the 4 program mornings you will have interactive classroom sessions with the other ventures, where you will work on different sections of your scaling plan - Mission, Scale-up Strategy, Go-to-market, and Team.

Meet your matches in the Dutch ecosystem

In the afternoons you will visit potential network partners, including corporates, R&D facilities, investors, and alumni scale-ups. In the evenings we will organize individual sessions with key prospective clients, investors, and scale-ups of your choice. The matchmaking will take place before the program, according to your scaling needs.
