This is a good time for Dutch companies to consider entering or further expanding in the world’s largest market, either directly or via a partnership with a U.S. company.

The Biden Administration introduced the Inflation Reduction Act (IRA) to stimulate investments in U.S. infrastructure and energy projects. Also various U.S. states have incentive programs for different sectors.

Our seminar on April 17 will share insights about opportunities, challenges and experience on doing business in the U.S. and explain among others how to benefit from the IRA and other subsidy programs.

This program is co-hosted by AVAG | Greenhouse Technology Center, EACC Netherlands and NLinBusiness. It’s meant for companies that are interested in the U.S. and who want to be further updated on the latest relevant resources available.
