First Dutch

Empowering Human Progress

A change of era comes with complex challenges, vastly more than in an era of change. But it is precisely this new era that will offer numerous possibilities for innovation, partnerships and growth. If we embrace change, we can entangle the pathway towards a new sustainable and profitable reality. 

What we do

We embrace change as the foundation of progress to stay relevant, unique and competitive and with a sustainable future. That is what we call: Empowering Human Progress.

Led by the vision of founder and driving force Peter Goedvolk, First Dutch, as a family of companies, enables progress and advancement by supporting its customers in their transition to a new era of business. At the same time, we encourage the development of sustainable innovations that can transform, enhance, and make the world a better place.

We deploy our resources and expertise to overcome complex social, technological and environmental challenges. We operate in various industries: energy, health and technology. But what unites us is the shared purpose that underlies all our activities. We empower human progress while creating a sustained, positive impact on society that contributes toward a prosperous future for generations to come.
