MKBServicedesk.nl has been taken over by the Tilburg-based company Van Spaendonck, the incubator that has been providing services to SMEs for 100 years. With this, Van Spaendonck has acquired a leading online platform for SMEs and the expertise of an online media company. The reach of MKBServicedesk.nl among entrepreneurs in the Netherlands is the main reason for Van Spaendonck's acquisition.
MKBServicedesk.nl has 225,000 visitors a month and provides current and future generations of entrepreneurs daily with content that helps them realise their ambitions and dreams. Ronald de Snoo, Business Owner of MKBServicedesk.nl: "The combination of the activities creates a strong collective with which we can make a real impact in the SME market.
Thanks to the acquisition, Van Spaendonck gives MKBServicedesk.nl the certainty that it will continue to offer entrepreneurs relevant content in the long term. In addition to MKBServicedesk.nl, Van Spaendonck will also acquire the community platform Big Dash and online marketing agency Agency No9 from Dutch Network Group. "The sale to Van Spaendonck not only ensures continuity but also guarantees an entrepreneurial spirit," says Willem Overbosch, founder of Dutch Network Group.
Knowledge partner MKB-Nederland will continue to link its name to MKBServicedesk.nl.
