Deventer export champions, partly thanks to SME Deventer!
SME Deventer is a business association of over 1,200 small and medium-sizes enterprises in Deventer. It is the largest local business association of the country. Its activities vary and include: lobbying, network improvement and the development of future-resistant entrepreneurship. We stimulate our members’ entrepreneurship through the programs / services below, namely: Ecommerce & renewing business models, Personnel- and procurement benefits, sustainability and export stimulation of members.
In addition to an active board, SME Deventer also has its own executive agency that executes the association’s large number of activities with and for its members.
SME Export drink
Since 2015, SME Deventer has been organising the export drink for its members who operate internationally three times a year. This is a collaboration with Rabobank Salland. During these meetings, many successful matches have already been made and a lot of work on export stimulation through local collaboration has been done. Both for companies who already export and companies who had not been doing so yet. In our own SME Magazine, our members can read the reports of the export drinks and the spinoffs they lead to.
Digital Deventer export channel
At www.exportdeventer.nl, you will find all six continents online. On the maps, you can see to which countries Deventer companies export their products and services.
