Global non-profit Samasource recently opened headquarters in The Hague, marking the company’s first European operations. A pioneer of impact sourcing, Samasource connects low-income people worldwide with fair work opportunities in data and digital services.
A Dutch Hub for Innovation
Samasource cites The Hague’s leadership in social impact and business innovation as a main reason behind the location decision for their European operations.
“As an international community of social innovators, the City of The Hague was a natural choice for the location of Samasource’s first European office. The European market is ripe for tapping into the impact sourcing model,” said Asian Hendricks, European Sales Manager of Samasource.
Samasource has created more than 30,000 opportunities for low-income people by sourcing projects for companies like Google, Glassdoor and Microsoft. The company currently works with low-income communities in Africa, Asia and the Americas.
