In addition to all formalities that an AGM comprises, we would like to give you a chance to promote your business and services to all attendees, as we invite you to do an Elevator Pitch

Presenting yourself effectively is an essential tool in the business arena. A well-executed elevator pitch can make sales, help generate capital, and lead to valuable partnerships. The Netherlands Business Council UAE would like to give you the chance to practice this important skill that we consider essential to growing a business. Whether you're just starting out or already have a growing business, we offer you a unique opportunity to take your venture to the next level. After your Elevator Pitch, you will get your own table to receive and network with members with an interest in your services.

In order to be eligible to participate in the NBC Elevator Pitches, you must be a member of the Netherlands Business Council UAE and be present during the General Assembly on the 20th of March. We have time for a limited number of pitches and participants will be selected on a first-come, first-served basis from the pool of applicants. So, mark your calendars and get ready to join us for an evening of exciting pitches and networking opportunities. 

Each pitch must comply with the following:  

  • No props or visual aids may be used (to create an authentic ‘elevator pitch’ environment) 
  • Each pitch must be delivered by a single individual (no team pitches)  
  • Each pitch should be no more than 2 minutes in length and in English 
  • Pitches are not subject to any confidentiality obligation and all presentations will have an audience
