Business Club V

The meeting place for entrepreneurs and professionals with an eye for culture

Any successful entrepreneur places the need for innovation and to move with the times at the top of their agenda. And any (young) professional knows that a strong network and a broad view are crucial to becoming a leader of tomorrow. Business Club V combines these valuable insights by bringing together young, industrious Rotterdammers and the Rotterdam Philharmonic Orchestra.

The V represents Beethoven’s Fifth Symphony. The famous first four notes ‘ta taa’ were played at the start of BBC News broadcasts during World War Two. In Morse code the note lengths stand for the letter V: V for Victory. For us it also represents five values that are shared by the worlds of classical music and commerce: leadership, surprise, entertainment, connection and inspiration.

Each year Business Club V organises four events at the heart of which lie these values. With top speakers, and musical interludes by members of our fantastic orchestra.

You can join at any time up to and including age 45, with a possible extension to age 49. The annual membership fee is €549 (plus VAT of 21%) and is partly tax deductible. This contribution benefits the Rotterdam Philharmonic Orchestra.
