EPN Successfully launched in Eindhoven!

After an initial launch in Den Haag in February, it was time for EPN (Ethiopian Professionals Network) to move to the Dutch City of Light, Eindhoven. It was a vibrant networking event with a strong representation of software and data science professionals. This was to be expected due to Eindhoven’s large demand of professionals in the high-tech sector. Nevertheless, there were a few professionals from other fields such as law and business analytics. Another notable mention is the female entrepreneur Debritu Moges, founder of Meskel and Co-founder of Moye Cofee (who also graciously sponsored our coffee for the event).

The program started with a presentation by EPN Board members on the motivation behind founding EPN and what has been accomplished so far. This included a discussion on the opportunities and challenges of Ethiopian Professionals in Netherlands and what role EPN can play in addressing the challenges. Being a non-profit organization, the role of volunteers was emphasized. This is beneficial not only to EPN but to the volunteers themselves creating opportunities for them to get professional advice, build their network, advertise their product or service, and other benefits that come with being part of a large professional group.

It was an inspiring event where the Eindhoven group showed initiatives for volunteering and provided insightful comments on the way forward. The importance of increasing EPN’s social media presence and attracting more professionals were two key points agreed upon by the board and members of EPN. One of the attendees, Tariku, also introduced the group to an ongoing effort to establish a more socially oriented organization for the general Ethiopian Community in Eindhoven. The event was closed by a Jenga game to demonstrate the essence of teamwork and creativity.

The next EPN networking event will be hosted by professionals in Amsterdam and the surrounding area. Venue and date will be communicated soon! 

See you all in Amsterdam!
