Get ready to succeed in export!

Export is not an easy discipline. There's more to it than a good product... It takes a lot of time and energy... You would like to exchange experiences with fellow entrepreneurs on a regular basis... And, finally, it's just not easy to find the right people for the job...

The Oranjewoud Export Academy offers inspiration and education at a high level! Our experts are all very experienced in export and international sales. For entrepreneurs, by entrepreneurs, that is our motto! And our talentpoule is filled with very ambitious young professionals, determined to become successful exportmanagers.


We want to strengthen welfare in the Northern Netherlands and we think more export is key to reach this goal. Therefor, we educate young professionals and support executives to make the right choices. Export is extremely challenging; new questions arise on a daily basis. There's never a dull moment throughout the year. Quite like our membership! Because when you are a member of the Oranjewoud Export Academy, you are part of a network that constantly adapts to your export reality. 

We don't decide what your membership is all about; you do! Our members create a longlist of relevant subjects in export throughout the year. These could address general economic subjects, but also ones that are specific for your organization. During a yearly kick off, our members choose and prioritize the subjects they want to specifically elaborate on for a year. 

Elaborating a subject is done in smaller member groups; tables. Every member joins the table of a preferred subject. Every table has a captain. And at this table you share thoughts, learn from each other, get inspired by key notes, meet storytellers and design solutions. All done in the pleasant atmosphere of the Oranjewoud estate. 

Are you curious about the longlist of subjects so far? Do not hesitate to contact us!

Any doubts? Then there is only one advice to follow: join our kick off! You do not have to decide to join the Academy in advance; you can do it after this event as well.
