About dutch

Dutch Group provides project management and program management with the aim to build better businesses for every stakeholder involved. With entrepreneurship embedded in the company’s DNA, Dutch Group connects the vision of entrepreneurs with the success and impact they aim to achieve. Working as a partner of entrepreneurs, Dutch Group is committed to the result. Dutch Group demonstrates this commitment by participating in the risks and results of every project. Dutch Group adds value by assisting companies to innovate, grow and enlarge their impact: social, ecologic and economic.

Dutch Group is also an initiator of new social or environmental initiatives. One example is Beebox which is a delivery service of regional food to households. The products are directly delivered from the farmer to the consumer’s house. This system makes other parties in the supply chain unnecessary and therefore reduces the negative impact of transporting products on the environment.

Another example is Dutch Impact Journeys, an initiative to connect professionals with entrepreneurs in emerging markets. Together they improve companies which can make a difference. The first, Dutch Impact Journey, went to Nepal and connected young professionals from The Netherlands with 16 local business owners to discuss the challenges they face, rewrite business plans, consult on how to get an investment and learn about entrepreneurship.

Other initiatives are Socialentreprise.nl, de Groene Zaak, Dutch Basecamp and Dutch Connected.

We became a B Corp because we are convinced that businesses which create both profit and impact will drive the future economy. The rationale of B Corps aligns perfectly with our vision and ambition to build better businesses. Furthermore, joining the B Corp Community is a great opportunity for us to build a business network which redefines success in business.

The Change We Seek®

Dutch Group is convinced that good entrepreneurship and social business can deliver sustainable growth and development. The change they seek is a fundamental change in the concept of entrepreneurship: the entrepreneur of the future is social responsible, sustainable and profit focused. That’s why their business goal is to build better businesses. Better for all stakeholders involved.

What makes us a better company?
