Event & Project Coordinator

Help fast-growing companies with their international ambition

We believe innovative entrepreneurs and their scale-ups make a positive impact on the world. At DutchBasecamp, we enable and accelerate this impact by helping entrepreneurs to succeed internationally.

We have already helped more than 600 founders and their scale-ups accelerate their international growth while saving valuable time, money and energy. But more importantly, we go for quality over quantity. That’s why the 8.5 average rating for our programmes is the number we’re most proud of. We are looking for you, if you want to help us increase our impact.

What does the Event & Project Coordinator do?

  1. Take care of the smoothest of all operations for every project or programme you are involved in. Here are examples of projects you will be contributing to:
    • Globalisers: 12-week internationalisation readiness programmes, focused on the international expansion of a group of 6-8 scale-ups (e.g Health tech, SaaS, Agri-Food).
    • Go-to-Market Programmes: focused on successful market expansion of scale-ups with innovative solutions to a specific industry in a foreign market.
    • Masterclasses or crash courses (online and offline) on internationalisation strategies
  2. Execute the above-mentioned, including a wide range activities:
    • Overall programme management: run the project and programme from start to finish, together with a programme lead. Planning, involve experts, communicate with participants, update and involve team members, evaluate and implement learnings.
    • Scout and select participants: validate the need within the target group, create a lead list, reach out to potential  participants, and do intakes.
    • Create slide decks and prepare some of the content for the sessions.
    • Event management & coordination of workshops: be in charge of the hospitality (production, room setup, catering etc.).
  3. Communicate with lots and lots of people (e.g. entrepreneurs, experts, and partners) to keep everyone informed and aligned. 


And above all: have fun!
