Current Projects

The Economic Board The Hague (EBTH) launches economic projects and accelerates specific ventures that will help to achieve its goals and ambitions. These undertakings can vary widely in nature. The EBTH aims to support projects in the startup phase. It does this in many ways, such as finding promising ideas or developing them itself, bringing parties together (around a suitable project idea), helping projects acquire funding, carrying out or commissioning feasibility studies, writing business cases and facilitating project designs. During (or following) this first phase, the EBTH passes on projects to parties that are active in The Hague. However, it remains involved in the projects as an ambassador and sometimes as a strategic partner. The EBTH has a limited operating budget available to cover project startup costs and/or to facilitate its role as co-financer for economic projects.
