Between 24-27 May 2016 The Netherlands will be the place where every startup in the world wants to be
Startup Fest 2016 is a four day marathon of matchmaking between startups, investors, developers, creatives and corporates.
Fourteen regional innovation hubs will host world class events In the first half of 2016 The Netherlands holds the presidency of the European Union. Startup Fest Europe is going to be a great way to show the world that the West Coast of Europe is a hot bed for startups and innovation. We will do this with inspirational speakers, mind blowing demos and a great opportunity to make deals, deals and more deals.
These four days are all about helping startups raise money, attract talent and connect with their peers, founders, leading scientists, venture capitalists, corporates, creatives and policy makers.
With the help of the International Circle of Influencers (ICI) we intend to invite top investors and business leaders from Silicon Valley and other parts of the startup world. We will connect them with the regional Tech Hub events that match their interest and portfolio.
Connect with corporates
Big companies know that disruption nowadays can come from everywhere. Through corporate venturing and “acq-hiring”, working with startups is proving to be the new way forward. StartupFest Europe will act as the ultimate matchmaking festival for startups and corporates.
Attract co-founders, creatives and developers
