SDBP – Association
The SDBP is organized as an association under Dutch laws (vereniging). This enables us to benefit from the flexible Dutch regulations for legal entities. This provides for example the possibility for non-Dutch residents to be a member of the board and introduce electronic voting / video-(general) meetings. Membership is open for everybody that is sharing the values and mission of the SDBP. The SDBP provides membership for individual persons and corporate organizations.
The main revenue stream should come through the membership fee (individuals: € 30,- and corporate organizations: € 250). Other relevant revenue streams are sponsorships. A Participation fee for bigger, more important events (for non-members) also also charged. The SDBP is eligible for state subsidies, therefore we strive to welcome (a minimum of) 30 corporate members.

Cresultant is committed to helping the horticultural sector to make the changes that it is currently facing. Everything starts with the cooperation between the producer and the end user and their requirements, bringing retail into connection with the entire chain. Once we know what the client needs, we can develop creative consumer-focused innovations. New collaborations are always tricky in the beginning, particularly if you don’t yet know the other partners in the chain very well. It is important to make connections. Cresultant completely understands the possibilities and emotions involved in achieving cooperation within the chain (and organizations) between various companies and individuals. Once a real connection has been made, and trust and confidence have been created, this will give rise to co-creation, Cresultant’s specialization.
Creativity is born from co-creation, in turn guaranteeing that results are achieved. Through experimentation and action, you and your group will discover what does and doesn’t work! If you don’t try, you’ll never discover anything. If you have the courage to learn by DOING, you will discover the next step automatically, TOGETHER!
