Our mission - What is our main goal?

MEBYF aims at becoming a one-stop solution for ex-pats in Holland who want to explore their entrepreneurial potential. We offer entrepreneurship trainings from Phase Zero to envision a SOLID business foundation, we also assist entrepreneurs with administrative essentials to create their own brand and we introduce them to our ever-growing and vast network of successful business owners of the MEBYF community! Thus, our mission is to empower individuals at every step to become self-sufficient and create a successful community of entrepreneurs.

Our history - How was MEBYF born?

MEBYF in Spanish stands for Mujeres Emprendedoras Bellas y Fuertes which translates to Beautiful and Strong Women Entrepreneurs. This foundation was born on 20-6-2015 in The Hague, Holland by a group of Latin American women led by Rosa Angela Intriago Murillo.

Let's introduce ourselves!

The directorate is made up of:

Popularly known as Rosy, this Ecuadorian entrepreneur is the Director of MEBYF. She has had an outstanding career in business development, innovation, and entrepreneurship. She comes from a family of leaders who invest their life, energies, and passion for the improvement of their communities. In the past 16 years that Rosy has lived here in the Hague, she observed the challenges of the Latin American community closely who did not have the same opportunities for personal and professional growth, despite their great potential and important skills. This was the main motivation to launch a project aimed at supporting, empowering and guiding Spanish-speaking entrepreneurs, through the development of their business ideas, their talents, and skills, until they could successfully present their products and services to the European community and in general to the international community, this is how the MEBYF Foundation was officially registered in the Netherlands in 2019.
