What is the Development Cooperation Matchmaking facility?
Serious companies in developing countries are often on the lookout for reliable business partners abroad. The Development Cooperation Matchmaking facility puts those companies in touch with Dutch businesses. The goal is to stimulate joint investment in your country.
What are the target countries?
The Development Cooperation Matchmaking facility is available to companies in your country and in more than 40 other countries in Africa, Latin America and Eastern Europe.
How does it work?
You must submit a proposal for cooperation with a Dutch company to the Dutch Embassy in your country. You must use a special form to do so (see the next paragraph).
The Embassy will consult with its local network to assess your proposal. Only proposals that receive a positive assessment will be sent on to EVD. Furthermore, proposals must be clearly formulated and well substantiated before being taken into consideration.
EVD, a Dutch government agency that provides support to businesses working in the international arena, will start identifying Dutch businesses that match your companyís profile.
If a suitable match is found, you will receive a voucher worth EUR 5,000. You can use the voucher to hire a Dutch consultant who will help you explore and define the cooperative effort between you and your Dutch business partner. The consultantís duties include arranging a visit for your company to the Netherlands and developing a joint action plan. All travel and accommodation expenses related to your companyís visit are your responsibility.
A half year after the visit, the consultant will conduct an evaluation to determine if the activities have resulted in a basis for further cooperation.
What is EVD?
EVD runs the Development Cooperation Matchmaking facility on behalf of the Dutch Minister of Development Cooperation.
