New creations in Feijenoord

What are the chances of the Afrikaander district in Rotterdam serving as a hotspot for special commercial activities? The opportunities are there for the taking, according to local business owners who developed the Feijenoord Opportunity Chart (Kansenkaart Feijenoord).

The Feijenoord Opportunity Chart provides an overview of opportunities for ‘new creations’ in this lively neighbourhood. Responding to the beckoning perspective of smart technology, high-quality crafts and trades and creative inventions, entrepreneurs work together to turn Feijenoord into a prosperous residential and commercial district.


The initiatives deployed to take the market, shops and businesses in the Afrikaander district to a whole new level represent good news to its nine thousand residents. They will turn their neighbourhood into an attractive, versatile and vibrant community. At the same time, the close cooperation between the local business owners will help to improve the image of the neighbourhood, which is likely to result in higher numbers of visitors. Furthermore, placements in (nonprofit or voluntary) organizations will provide opportunities for local residents to gain work experience.
