| The16 Guestblog | Major assignment for The16!

The trade mission of The16 is quickly approaching. In less than one month the team will fly to Toronto, Boston and New York to share knowledge and to learn from the entrepreneurial climate of the United States and Canada. After almost four months of hard work, the team got to know each other better by working together on exciting assignments. Last week, The16 closed their biggest deal until now, with one of the largest leading news media publisher in the Netherlands: De Persgroep





The diverse portfolio of De Persgroep includes 4 national, 9 regional and over two hundred weekly newspapers. Besides that they also manage strong online brands such as intermediair.nl, tweakers.nl, carsom.nl, nationalevacaturebank.nl, autotrack.nl and Qmusic. It is a publisher with passion for media, where striking editorials reach and captivate over 9.3 million readers daily. The young and ambitious team of The16 perfectly matches the philosophy of De Persgroep, that understands it needs to innovate and generate fresh ideas to keep their strong foothold in the market.

The16 Student Entrepreneurs will perform three different assignments for De Persgroep, so all hands will be on deck to make sure the project will run smoothly. The team is very enthusiastic to work together with such a great company. The last weeks of The16 will definitely be busy, but this will only make the reward feel even better.
