It's very simple: time to get expats out of their fishbowl, and into the ocean called Amsterdam! :)
When do you TRULY connect to the city anymore? Meeting Dutch people, visiting start-up companies, experiencing new ideas and concepts, helping out with charities and having a place to go to for any problem you might run into.
AMS Connected modestly aims to do Three Groundbreaking Earth-shattering Things:
1. Connect The City (as we ARE special, in Amsterdam) more to the expats
Sneak peak at new concepts, connect with new Dutch start-ups, show life in Amsterdam with a twist!
2. Connect to Other Fishbowls
Get to know Dutch people (tough cookies), help out at Dutch charities once every 2 months, and meet and greet with some of the most interesting Amsterdam folks around!
3. Back to True Connection
Putting expats in a room with fancy music doesn't create *MAGIC*. For that to happen, we go deeper, and have creative, fun, and serious activities, pulling you more and more out of your comfort zone, and into a true Group Feeling again!
My name is Rowin, a true Dutchie who has lived all over the world, but always ends up right back here, in this gorgeous city filled with canals. After having organized original and fun activities for expats in Amsterdam for over 2 years, it's time to take it a step further. This is my own group, my try at giving expats more than just parties, and a chance to give something back....:)
Happy to have Chef a.k.a. Abraham and our team of organizers help me with organizing the best activities out there for all of you. Time to CONNECT. The city is, after all, our playground.....:)
