Sven Pekelder joins economic mission USA

2023-11-30 From December 4-8, our CTO Sven Pekelder, will join amongst others Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte and Flemish Prime Minister Jan Jambon for an economic mission in the USA.

Settels Savenije, represented by Sven, will be part of a delegation of 45 Dutch and Flemish companies and institutes specialized in the semiconductor industry. The goal of this mission is to connect with the semicon- and tech industry in Phoenix and San Francisco Bay, and to exchange knowledge & opportunities.

"Arizona and Silicon Valley serve as hubs of US semiconductor innovation, offering numerous opportunities for Flemish and Dutch companies to exchange knowledge and establish meaningful partnerships. As the semiconductor industry is truly global, we foster openness and collaboration with other nations. That is why the Netherlands and Flanders are organizing this joint economic mission, with the goal to seize opportunities and accelerate innovation together." (, 2023)

Settels is looking forward to meet with known and new companies to move their roadmaps forward and to support their manufacturing operations. 

We wish Sven a insightful and successful mission!
