Strengthening the Foundations of SMEs

The Hague, October 2, 2023 - A brief summary of the 'Entrepreneurs Think Along' event, organized by the Ministry of Economic Affairs and Climate.

Last week, I - Paul Joore - had the privilege of participating in the Entrepreneurs' Panel of the Ministry of Economic Affairs and Climate, along with other passionate entrepreneurs. A fascinating dialogue with ministers Liesje Schreinemacher (Foreign Trade and Development Cooperation) and Micky Adriaansens (Economic Affairs and Climate) was central.

The commitment of the ministers to improve the entrepreneurial climate in the Netherlands is clearly visible. They are introducing practical tools such as the "waste fund tool" and a specific GDPR page for SMEs. Additionally, there's the 'export guide' for entrepreneurs wanting to grow internationally. Their vision is clear: to strengthen the foundations of SMEs and collectively build a robust economic future.

Ministers' Vision and ICR's Align Perfectly

And this vision aligns perfectly with our ambition at Route ICR. With our generic normative framework, you strengthen the foundation of your organization. You create targeted focus and thereby more effective and efficient processes. In other words, less value loss, more value creation. Thus, more sustainable, more time, energy, and money for innovation and a stronger SME base for broad prosperity.

I am proud to contribute my part and look forward to further collaboration with the government to enrich the entrepreneurial landscape of the Netherlands.

Over de schrijver
Entrepreneurs take risks and are incredibly important for our economy. Unfortunately, a good balance between work and private life is often lacking. It is precisely this that drives Paul Joore to have a positive impact on the lives of entrepreneurs and contribute to their success. Paul is the ambitious founder of the online Route ICR platform for successful entrepreneurship. He is also the author of the entrepreneurship book ‘Succesvol groeien doe je zo!’ (Successful Growth, How to Do It!). "I believe in setting seemingly unattainable goals. Challenging oneself, innovating, and constantly improving. Supported by a well-structured organization." Paul has tens of thousands of flight hours in the business world, with a background as an entrepreneur, coach, interim manager, and former chartered accountant. Always focusing on realizing challenging goals as effectively and efficiently as possible: in other words, being successful through being inControl, in the entire process from true ambition to result. This only works by thinking, planning, and acting from a goal-oriented structure. In the SME sector, there was a lack of knowledge and experience in this area, and well-thought-out solutions were not available. Therefore, Paul decided to create this himself. In many SME businesses, the 'madness of the day' reigns. As a result, entrepreneurs are not inControl when it comes to achieving goals, let alone challenging ones. Therefore, they also do not realize their true ambition. Worse, for many, this ambition is not even crystal clear. And how can you work towards a goal without having a real one? Logically, there can also be no balance between work and private life. And no balance means no rest. So, the Route ICR web app helps entrepreneurs and teams to be inControl in the entire process from ambition to result. With the ICR "InControlRating" of your business as a growth compass. Very clear and handy to know through one number how your business is and will be doing. So you know whether you will achieve your goals and be successful from this starting point. And if the score is disappointing, you also know what to work on to improve. This way, you gradually work towards a better balance in your life, feel good about yourself, and have a positive mindset! Are you curious? You too can experience the Route ICR web app for 14 days free of charge, without obligations!
