Softlanding Program - to Berlin

Impact Hub Amsterdam, Amsterdam Impact – the City of Amsterdam’s impact entrepreneurship program – and ABN AMRO are organising a 5-day soft landing visit to Berlin for 5 sustainable food companies looking to expand into the German market. The trip is packed with on-site visits, expert meetings, networking and workshops. You will meet stakeholders from retail and food service; the municipality; the local food, social enterprise, and startup communities; investors; and production facilities. After the trip, you can expect to have a go-to-market roadmap with your next steps and all the relevant contacts to follow up with and validate your business in this market!


The trip is scheduled from 28 September through 2 October, 2020. The program is subject to COVID-19 regulations and may be postponed if necessary.


The program and curated content are taken care of; all you need to pay for is your own travel expenses (travel, hotel, food).
