Bedrijvenkring Apeldoorn

The Bedrijvenkring Apeldoorn (BKA) is an entrepreneurs' association with nearly 300 members. This makes BKA the largest entrepreneurs' association in Apeldoorn and a significant partner in dialogues with local authorities. Apeldoorn serves as a breeding ground for distinctive businesses in the region, ranging from large to medium-sized and even small enterprises that specialize in unique products and play a pivotal role in the (international) market. Apeldoorn houses numerous such companies, which the BKA rightfully takes pride in. BKA's activities encompass advocacy, lobbying, and strengthening its members' network.

Since 2017, the BKA has been organizing export meetings for its members engaged in international operations. This involves collaborations with the MKB Trade Office, RCT Gelderland, and the Apeldoorn municipality. During these gatherings, experiences are shared, and potential collaborations are uncovered. Thanks to local partnerships, significant progress has been made in the field of export, benefiting both already exporting companies and businesses in the initial phases of exporting their products.
