Recently, TWTG was invited to join the Dutch trade mission Smart Cities in New York City, US. This invitation is one result of winning the ‘Oranje Handelsmissiefonds’ in 2017, which is a collaboration between MKB Nederland, ING Bank, Royal Dutch KLM and the Netherlands Enterprise Agency (RVO). TWTG CTO John Tillema visited the conference together with Business Development Intern Sasa, who is researching the market potential of smart cities for TWTG.
The video embedded below is produced to emphasize the role of OHMF and the journey we’ve received as winners. International expansion and orientation isn’t new for TWTG, but the help and support we receive from the Netherlands Enterprise Agency is very valuable. It can be seen as a figurative foot in the door that allows you in at certain places, you would normally have to work really hard for to access that level. “We’re also doing the hard work every day, all day, but the tremendous help we receive from Oranje Handelsmissie Fonds is very valuable. And of course their partners, such as KLM that quite literal brings us to our international destination – haha.”, John adds.
