NIBC provides starting brewers in Amsterdam with a tailor-made mortgage to expand their business

Helping entrepreneurs

Martijn and Sanne, two former chefs and founders of the Two Chefs Brewing company in Amsterdam, started brewing craft beers in 2012 after leaving their jobs in the corporate world. Although proficient at starting and running a successful business, they would still find it hard to find a mortgage without help from NIBC Direct, which is offering mortgages to entrepreneurs too. 

Entrepreneurial and creative

NIBC Direct focuses on entrepreneurs and provides one of the few mortgage products that is available on the market for these customers. We consider any entrepreneur who has been in business for one year as a potential customer and will use the financial records are available to calculate the maximum amount we are willing to lend.

Delivering results

Martijn and Sanne do not have to worry about their mortgage anymore. They can focus on taking their business to the next level.

NIBC was there when we needed a bank to believe in our business proposition and provide a sensible mortgage solution. We were able to demonstrate the long-term viability of our business model as well our track record, so it has been great to deal with a partner that can think outside the box and is entrepreneurial in the same way we are. - Two Chefs Brewing
