PUM launches app

PUM’s impact within easy reach

The PUM app is live, so you can stay up to date with the latest news. In this digital version of PUMmagazine you can read interviews, reports and background stories about our contribution to the sustainable development of small and medium-sized companies in emerging markets – in some thirty countries worldwide.

PUM topics

Experts and entrepreneurs share their stories through the app, talking about factors for successful growth, improving business operations and creating employment. And we hear from experts and partners about the positive impact of sharing practical knowledge. In the app, we focus on relevant PUM topics such as  incubator programmes, entrepreneurship and female entrepreneurship,  training and education, international corporate social responsibility, youth employment creation and aid & trade.

Our sustainable DNA

Fully in line with our sustainable DNA, the printed PUMmagazine has now made way for the app. We’ve been sharing stories for a long time at PUM, such as in our bulletin Buitenwerk launched in 1988. In 2008, this became PUMmagazine and now, in 2018, we’ve gone digital. This means we can now publish news and stories more often and respond quickly to the latest developments. What's more, we can publish our stories in Dutch and English so we’ll have a much broader reach. The PUM app is free of charge and available for iOS and android.

Practical knowledge, positive impact

PUM’s focus is on the sustainable development of small and medium-sized companies in developing countries and emerging markets. By providing practical knowledge, we have a positive impact on the economy, the environment and society.

40 years of PUM

2018 sees the 40th anniversary of PUM Netherlands senior experts. PUM was established in 1978 by the Confederation of Netherlands Industry and Employers (VNO-NCW) with support from the Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs. Over the years we’ve advised more than 40.000 entrepreneurs worldwide. With our missions and programmes, we will continue to have a positive impact.
