There is nothing virtual about our online networking

These past few months must have been the strangest in our lives. We hope you are all safe and healthy and that you were able to respond positively to this unparalleled challenge in one way or another.

We have turned the NCCC Traders by Nature in an online Chamber of Commerce, with a heavy focus on networking.

In April, we launched our online community platform. Our main aim is to build a better community and create a sustainable positive impact together. Especially in these times when we might be physically isolated, but mentally we continue to trade.

What is truly innovative about this platform is that it makes sure you meet the people you want to meet, either online or at a physical event. This platform does not leave effective networking to chance.”

Our platform allows you to join events with one click and see who else will be joining an event. More importantly, you can request a personal meeting with any of the participants. Our platform comes with a Marketplace, in which you can publish your opportunities or special offers.

Try out our online community platform now. You can sign up for free via the login button on our website or go straight to

In the meantime, stay safe and try to remain focused on the positive. Creating impact together is more important than ever.

Bastiaan Brouns
Director NCCC Traders by Nature
