Creative Trade Missions are the ECB Network version of a method that
has been successful for many centuries: the trade mission.

Companies and industry organizations join forces
to visit a new market or to invite companies to their market.

Together they attract more attention and can cost effectively organize
events for a larger audience.

How to stimulate entrepreneurship
and (international) growth at city level?
Welk bedrijf start jij? Er zijn vele verschillende bedrijven, maar uiteindelijk zijn bijna alle bedrijven op te delen in drie groepen:

The role of government:
- Focus and choose 1-3 key sectors
- Top-down concrete programmes
for (international) growth.
- Bottom-up: accommodate new
initiatives in the key sectors.
- Use these sectors to brand
your city in a unique way.
