Welcome to the DBC   

The Dutch Business Club is a non-profit organization founded in Madrid with the aim of promoting networking between Dutch people. We strive for optimal exchange of relevant work experiences and contacts of Dutch companies and individual professionals.

Since its unofficial establishment nearly eight decades ago, the DBC has served as the ultimate meeting place for Dutch-speaking entrepreneurs, managers, directors, and other professionals in the Spanish capital. We do this by organizing business events in a pleasant and informal setting. A business lunch is held every first Tuesday of the month, often with interesting speakers present. Come and get acquainted and taste the atmosphere during one of our events and sign up as a guest.
