Holland in the Valley - United States

Holland in the Valley

The objective of Holland in the Valley is to tap into the tech developments taking place in Silicon Valley to strengthen ties between the Netherlands and the Bay Area at multiple levels. The program will facilitate collaboration between leading Bay Area Dutch companies and outstanding Dutch students, the Silicon Valley ecosystem, and California.

Holland in the Valley creates value by building on and expanding a network of established Dutch nationals in California and strengthening that circle through round tables, networking events, and topical sessions. In addition, we seek to link this network to the existing corporate and university system and the budding startup community in the Netherlands.

The consulate-general plays a leading role within Holland in the Valley, supported by its board of trustees. It curates events on behalf of the network, and offers its venue space in San Francisco’s Financial District as event space. Holland in the Valley events are made possible through annual donations by corporate and academic partners.
