Dutch Good Growth Fund now also available for startups!
Does your startup have plans to launch or produce your product in a developing country or emerging market? And do you have a solid business plan, but the banks are reluctant to provide the necessary funding? If so, then the Dutch government can probably help.
Doing business in a developing country
With the Dutch Good Growth Fund (DGGF), the Netherlands Enterprise Agency supports SMEs and startups wishing to invest in – or export to – developing countries and emerging markets. These include 68 countries, the so-called DGGF countries.
Startups contribute to development
Startups are an important target group for the Dutch government. They make an impact at local level in a DGGF country and thus contribute to that country’s economic development, for instance by tapping into new sales markets, creating local job opportunities or transferring new technologies, knowledge and skills.
The DGGF therefore supports startups wishing to invest in and do business with developing countries and emerging markets.
Which startups are elibigle for DGGF funding:
- Startups wishing to launch or produce an existing European product in a developing country.
- Innovative startups that want to develop or produce a new product in a DGGF country.

The Dutch Good Growth Fund was established in 2014 by the Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs. The DGGF for startups will be administered by the Netherlands Enterprise Agency (RVO.nl).
