On 9 September 2016, ESBA's Dutch member organised a very successful 'Day of the Entrepreneur' in The Hague (NL). The event took place in a beautiful pavilion which was strategically set up on the main square in front of the Dutch government building, with both entrances facing each other. There was no excuse for ministers and members of Parliament, not to attend and so they did. The main attraction of the event was certainly a one on one between Dutch Prime Minster Mark Rutte in which he gave one hour of his time to answer questions and learn from Dutch entrepreneurs. Dutch Prince Constantijn van Oranje Nassau, who also served in the Cabinet of former EU Commissioner Neelie Kroes addressed the audience as well in an interactive session.
