You’re invited to PICNIC in Amsterdam

The Dutch government is inviting 15 US and Canadian IT and new media companies to visit Holland from September 20th – 25th to participate in matchmaking and networking events including the popular PICNIC festival.

In an effort to bring together the innovators of the world, Amsterdam annually hosts the PICNIC festival. Thousands of people across the globe gather to share ideas, get inspired and work together on exciting topics. The festival blurs the lines between creativity, science, technology and business to explore solutions in the spirit of co-creation.

There is a special Dutch government grant available for a limited group of Canadian (and American) new media, social media, web 2.0, mobile and creative companies that will allow them to join this week filled with matchmaking, network, pressure cooker events and PICNIC festival for free.

The grant is being made available by Agency NL EVD International and Canadian companies that want to explore the Dutch/European market can apply by sending an email to Sandra Brandenberg at  More information can be found on the opportunity on the project website:
