Are you an SME business owner and do you want to expand to the international market? Or are you already active in the international market but do you need support? You can participate in the Orange Trade Mission Fund (Oranje Handelsmissiefonds, OHMF).

The OHMF helps small and medium-sized enterprises to set foot on foreign markets. Each year a committee selects 10 SMEs which stand out on topics such as sustainability, creativity, or innovation. Selected SMEs receive advice, coaching, and networking opportunities for 1 year.

Who can apply?

Dutch SMEs can participate if they meet the criteria (in Dutch):

  • you are an SME with at most 250 employees and a turnover of more than €250,000 per year
  • you want to enter the international market or are already active internationally but could use support
  • your SME is financially sound and able to scale up if the transition to the international market is successful. Nominees need to provide financial results of the past 2 years
  • you stand out from your competitors in creativity or innovation

How to apply

Applications for the 2024 Orange Trade Mission Fund competition are closed. The OHMF will return in 2025.
