Vindsubsidies expands further with the acquisition of de Breed & Partners.

As of today, Vindsubsidies is acquiring subsidies consultancy de Breed & Partners. With this acquisition, they now have a presence throughout the Netherlands. Director Henk Heerink: "De Breed & Partners is Vindsubsidies' first acquisition of 2023, and its largest to date. This is another important step in our growth strategy and our goal to become the market leader in the subsidies field in the Netherlands".

With over 45 colleagues, de Breed & Partners is a household name in the world of subsidy intermediaries. With their excellent reputation and large client base, Vindsubsidies is therefore very pleased to add de Breed & Partners to its organisation and looks forward to the partnership. This acquisition will enable Vindsubsidies to serve its current and future clients even better throughout the country. For now, de Breed & Partners will continue to operate under its own name and from its well-known locations in Amsterdam and Breda. The activities will continue to be performed the way clients are used to them, by the same consultants; they will only notice the positive differences of Vindsubsidies' full-service approach. "We are convinced that through this acquisition, de Breed & Partners clients will be served even better by combining the knowledge and expertise of both parties. In addition, de Breed & Partners clients will from now on be able to access the full range of subsidy products and (digital) services that Vindsubsidies offers companies, government organisations, the education sector and knowledge institutions", says Joost Emke, co-director of de Breed & Partners. "In addition, Vindsubsidies customers can directly use our unique expertise in the area of Innovation Box", adds Arno van Klinken, director of de Breed & Partners.

Heerink: "This acquisition means we can now call ourselves the largest and best Research and Development (Promotion) Act (WBSO) intermediary in the Netherlands, an important milestone. I am very pleased with the recent developments and would like to extend a warm welcome within our organisation to Joost, Arno and all our new colleagues. The fact that we have already been working intensively together in the background during the recent period on the integration, but also on client projects, strengthens my feeling that there is a good click between both businesses in terms of culture, but also in terms of working methods and client approach".
