With the help from established Business Angels, VCs, Corporate Venture Funds and other finance professionals, you will now know your next step into the funding cycle!
In a group of around 10 startups, you will visit a selection of relevant investors at their offices. Each visit lasts 50 minutes and will be moderated by a tour guide from the startup community.

Therefore, we are working hard to open up even more investor offices in The Netherlands and who knows, in the future in other cities around the world!

"We joined the Capital Tour XXL twice already and both times were a great experience. Both times we didn't find a suitable investor but the networking and pitching of our product gave us great insights and possible partners for our business. We are still looking for investors for MOMALA. The application is improved constantly and in the beginning of 2018, we want to go to market in Kenya!"
"We like to build relationships with financing partners up front and prior to our investment of mid-next year. More importantly, we collect feedback from the market on our progress, our business case and our approach. This helps us to be better in time. We like to see investors as customers as well, therefore an event like #CTXXL is our way of customer success."
"It's a great event for demystifying the whole funding aspect. When you begin as a startup, you don't know what an investor is, or what they are interested in. Capital Tour XXL gives you easy access and a flying start to looking for investment and getting to know investors."
"After experiencing the excitement of Capital Tour XXL as a tour guide in Amsterdam in 2016, together we organised the first Capital Tour XXL in Rotterdam. The event is a very powerful and fun way to connect and demystify the world of capital. Our city's investors, startup ambassadors and innovation hubs embraced the opportunity to show off the city and port and forge new connections."
“Capital Tour XXL is the must-go-to event for startup founders about demystifying investments. Founders can connect, learn and pitch in an open setting to top-notch Dutch angel investors and VC’s. It’s a huge opportunity to leave with an investment, or at least with valuable new connections and inspiration.”
“Secretly one of the most valuable events for startups of the year. It's personal, you get guidance and it is very relevant for (local) entrepreneurs to explore the different funding options in your city."
“Peak Capital encourages demystification of Venture Capital so founders can spend more time on growing their business. This is also the reason we invented our continuous updated marketmap and we are really happy connecting with all kinds of founders during Capital Tour XXL.”
"Capital Tour XXL presents an unparalleled possibility for entrepreneurs to speak to VCs in one day. For us this is a good opportunity to meet many interesting people in one day e.g. entrepreneurs, investors and other VCs."
Stay tuned, the next edition of #CTXXL and Early Bird Tickets will be on sale in July!
Capital Tour XXL takes place twice a year in Amsterdam and in Rotterdam. We are proud to be supported by both Amsterdam Capital Week (september) and Rotterdam Capital Days (april), who are hosting all kinds of fellow-events focused on connecting startups to capital.
