Start-up en Scale-up

Sooner or later, even a starting or scaling-up entrepreneur will have to deal with various legal issues. We understand that entrepreneurs, especially in the start-up and scaling-up phase, prefer to invest their time and money in other matters, such as the development of their business. However, it is important to obtain good legal advice even in the start-up phase, so that you can subsequently build on your business with confidence.

Ploum has extensive experience in advising start-ups and up-and-coming businesses, and we are therefore happy to be your business partner in the legal field. We believe in long-term relationships with our clients and are happy to invest in them. Our starting point is that Ploum will accommodate start-ups and scale-ups in terms of costs during the start-up phase, but that these companies will receive the same attention, service and expertise as all our other clients. In addition, start-ups and scale-ups have access to the in-house legal training institute "Ploum Academy", client events and know-how.

Citylab010 & Stichting Voor Goed

Ploum has been a proud partner of Citylab010 for many years. Citylab010 is an initiative of the municipality of Rotterdam. Every year, the municipality of Rotterdam makes 3 million euros available in subsidies for innovative plans by Rotterdammers that will benefit the city. As a true Rotterdam office, we are pleased to contribute by providing legal advice to planners who wish to apply for or have already received a subsidy.

Since the establishment of Stichting Voor Goed "Rotterdam Impact Agency", Ploum has also been involved in the various initiatives of this foundation, including helping and advising relations of Stichting Voor Goed but also participating in the winter coat collection. In this way, we contribute both legally and non-legally to a better Rotterdam.
