Sustainable entrepreneurship

We help entrepreneurs face the challenges and opportunities of our time. We do this with knowledge, networks and financial solutions relating to circular entrepreneurship, digitalization and innovation, as well as sustainable construction. After all, in order to remain competitive, entrepreneurs and sectors need to keep up with the transition to a new economy – one characterized by circularity, digitalization, innovation and internationalization. However, successful entrepreneurship also requires a contribution to “broad prosperity,” in which sustainability, inclusivity, employment, well-being, development and concern for society feature strongly.

Our ambition is to strengthen regional ecosystems and achieve demonstrably sustainable growth for 100,000 entrepreneurs over the next three years. Rabobank offers entrepreneurs various programs, instruments and financing options that are specifically aimed at sustainable entrepreneurship. Examples include the Rabo Circular Business Desk and the Rabo Sustainable Innovation Prize (in Dutch).
