The Netherlands has a huge pool of inspiring people, creative talent and great startups. There is an enormous global market to be served by them. With its small home market, it’s difficult to achieve size and scale. To truly compete and reach their potential, the Dutch have to think and operate globally faster than ever before.
By working together upon entering the global market, the Dutch can benefit through:
- sharing knowledge
- exchanging contacts
- being more visible on an international level
- cutting costs
- having more fun
A NEW NETWORK
The time is right to create a new organization that’s smart, efficient and entertaining. A new network. This new network should focus on several types of individuals and organizations:
Startups and bands
They’re on the cutting edge. Know what’s up. Their founders are curious, active networkers on an international level. They are open to learning from others. Above all, they want to showcase their work.
Established companies and organizations
These incumbents want to stay current on the latest developments. Keeping in touch with the hottest startups keeps them fresh and alert. They want to share their knowledge and promote their products and services to fast growing companies.
And then there’s the individual talent. They may never do a startup or work at a big company. But they know people and can influence an audience. We know them as artists, bloggers, journalists, dancers, hackers, dj’s and models.
INTRODUCING THE DUTCH FELLOWS
“I’m with The Dutch Fellows. An exclusive club of creative entrepreneurs and talented artists based in the Netherlands.”
- is an exclusive (members only) club of creative entrepreneurs and talented artists
- brings people together from the technology and digital media industry
- combines business with pleasure
- organizes exclusive and secret get-togethers, as well as open events
- takes place in various, flexible locations (think of a ‘Pop Up’ society)
“A fellow in the broadest sense is someone who is an equal or a comrade. The term fellow is also used to describe a person. It is most often used in an academic context: a fellow is often part of an elite group of learned people who are awarded fellowship to work together as peers in the pursuit of knowledge or practice. The fellows may include visiting professors, postdoctoral researchers and doctoral researchers.”
The Dutch Fellows are:
- members with different titles
- active online through social media and dutchfellows.com
- a diverse group of unified individuals
- today’s startups can be tomorrow’s giants
- today’s students can be tomorrow’s leaders
- big business needs love too
- anyone can request an invitation
- but you need at least one member to support your application
MEMBERSHIPS AND EVENTS
Membership of The Dutch Fellows:
The Dutch Fellows have a natural hierarchy, not one that dominates, but a structure that inspires. Members are invited to all Fellow Events, without any obligation to attend.
The Dutch Fellows will periodically organize and be present at international events. Attending an event organized by the Dutch Fellows doesn’t mean you’ve become a member, but it could be a first step towards membership.
Primary goal of all Fellow Events is to promote and facilitate personal networking and business development by its members.
BUSINESS IS PERSONAL
Members of The Dutch Fellows are equal, but not the same. To emphasize this there are different titles for the various memberships:
Founder: Founding Fellow
Sponsor: Funding Fellow
Organization: Fixing Fellow
VIP guest: Fellow Friend
Talent/student: Future Fellow
Invitations to join The Dutch Fellows are always personal. Founders leave and start new companies. Companies are sold and shut down. But talent is forever.
