BiD Network receives 500.000 euro 2014

BiDNetwork is very proud to announce that during the Goed Geld Gala ceremony in Amsterdam, on the 4th of February 2014, BiD Network received 500,000 euros from the Dutch Postcode Lottery to continue preparing emerging market entrepreneurs for investors. The lottery gave away a record amount of 302 million euro to be divided over 101 beneficiaries. An amazing accomplishment.

BiD Network would like to thank the Dutch Postcode Lottery and the lottery participants for their support during the last 7 years and for believing that entrepreneurship contributes to sustainable economic growth in emerging countries. We will use this money to keep on connecting financiers to entrepreneurs, providing entrepreneurs access to finance and investors a social return on investment.
