The number of Dutch creative entrepreneurs keeps growing, with an enormous global market to be tapped into.
The Dutch Fellows have a natural hierarchy, not one that dominates, but a structure that inspires. To emphasize this, there are different titles for different memberships:
- Founder: Founding Fellow
- Sponsor: Funding Fellow
- Organization: Fixing Fellow
- VIP guest: Fellow Friend
- Talent/student: Future Fellow
The three paid memberships are the Founding Fellows, Funding Fellows and the Fellow Friends. The Founding Fellows are usually startups. They pay half the rate of the more established larger companies, the Funding Fellows, but the Funding Fellows get twice the promotional value. The Fellow Friend membership is aimed at creative individuals who attend SXSW and participate in The Dutch Fellows events in the Netherlands.
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. Members are invited to all Fellow Events, without any obligation to attend.The primary goal of these events is to promote and facilitate personal networking and business development by its members.
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.
Fellow Friend membership: € 1.500
Founding Fellows membership: € 5.000
Funding Fellows membership: € 10.000
Of course it is possible that a new Fellow of ours already has a SXSW badge. In that case, we can offer a Fellow Friend membership at the special rate of €750,-.
