Target Audience: Canadian Cyber, Defense, and Security Technologies exporters that have the Netherlands and Europe as a priority to expand and want to accelerate their first sales cycle in this market.
Sector: Information and communications technologies
The Canada-Netherlands Cyber and Security Technologies Soft Landing Platformprovides an opportunity for Canadian firms to work at the HSD Campus – the national innovation centre for security in the City of The Hague for a period of up to three months (shorter is also possible). By participating in the program, firms have access to key resources as well as valuable mentorship from InnovationQuarter, the Dutch Chamber of Commerce, industry leaders and HSD Office to build a strong regional network in the cyber and security market and make strategic connections.
Ultimately, the platform offers a low risk entry trial to Canadian companies entering a new international market, accessing the resources they need to more readily tap into commercial opportunities. We aim to connect you with new partners, closing new deals, and possibly setting up a permanent presence here.
The Netherlands is an important "gateway" for Canadian firms interested in doing business in Europe. Therefore, this initiative promotes exporting, foreign investment but also innovation collaboration between Canada and the Netherlands.
