About De Partnership Verkiezing (The Partnership Election)

The Partnership Election is an 8-month program in which young professionals and senior executives develop social & sustainable business cases in partnerships with NGOs, knowledge institutions and government to contribute to society at large.

Since October last year, participants from Ahold Delhaize, AEGON, Rabobank, Philips, PwC, a.s.r, Zilveren Kruis Achmea, Eurocross and Sytrus have worked hard to develop amazing business cases. Hundreds of young professionals have participated in recent years, and we have appeared in media such as BNR, NRC, FD. Some impact cases: ABN AMRO with a case in which 40 ex-refugees are hired, Zilveren Kruis helps families out of poverty with an app and Ahold with a sustainable rice brand. On Friday 17 April, the young professionals will present their business cases, the temporary top 3 will be announced for the main prize and the Future Makers Award will be presented.
