What is our benefit ? We are happy to let others tell you!
Dutch Learning Company (DLC) was in a turbulent growthfase in 2010, after the succesfull introduction of “Iedereen EHBO” onto the Dutch market.
DLC started to look for investors in august 2010, which resulted in a deal with a couple of members from the Investors Club. This actively involved syndicate aided a thorough jrestructuring and establishment of a new SBU by investing money and time. Everything was realised within a relatively short period of six months.
Members of the Investors Club stepped out during the next investment round with a good return on investment.
We look back on a very valuable contribution of the Investment Club in total and the involvement of every investor in particular. We didn’t only get ‘smart money’ but also ‘involved money’.

“Excellent initiative of the Investors Club. These kind of activities contribute to the awareness that informal investment is important for entrepeneurs and business angels”
Menno Lanting, founder of City Secret – a local discount marketing tool for entrepreneurs
I really liked the informal introduction with the Investors Club and other entrepeneurs. Besides geting to know the methods and the people of the club you also meet other entrepeneurs. In my conversations with these ‘partners in crime’ I came up with new ideas and co-operations. Without a doubt, an inspiring session with clear steps towards finding one or more informal investors for my growing company.
