Our long time partner WorldStartup is taking over the organising the upcoming edition, thanks to the support and close collaboration from Gemeente Den Haag, The Hague Business Agency and ImpactCity.
While we have earned ourselves a reputation for organising large scale matchmaking events, our focus has always been around making meaningful (curated) connections in informal settings. Hence, we have decided to mix up our year calendar by adding smaller theme-based editions.
How does Capital Tour look like in its most curated form, while the focus is on intimacy, connection and experience? Read on!
We are choosing only 20 Dutch and International purpose-driven startups that are already doing business in The Netherlands.
Either you’re raising investment right now or just looking to explore opportunities and warm up some investors for future rounds, you are ready for taking on investment. This means you have a full-time team, product-market fit, clearly identifiable advantage, and proven traction. Traction can be in terms of significant revenue or paid pilots or previously raised investment. You’ll have a chance to meet with up to 10 investors specifically from these themes, making it extremely relevant.
For this edition we will select 20 startups & scaleups who are active in the following verticals:
Together with all the founders, investors, and partners, we kick-off the day together. We’ll explain more about what to expect and share some last tips before you head off to meet startups or investors. We’ll share inspiration with some special guests.
During Capital Tour, you’ll have the opportunity to create your own personal ‘Tour de Funding’ and have funding-focused speed date sessions with investors at the event venue. Based on your funding profile – you’ll receive a questionnaire after you registered – our team will rate your investment readiness.
Once selected, you’ll receive access to our matchmaking tool through which you can match with investors or potential business partners. You will also have the opportunity to send personal meeting requests to investors. Once the investors accept your request, the meeting will take place on the event day.
We are giving founders the power to choose the setting of their informal meetings. Do you want to sit down, grab a coffee or take a stroll? It’s up to you!
We’ll be joined by the larger Innovation Community of The Hague, as this also happens to be the official Christmas Party for Gemeente Den Haag and its partners in the entrepreneurship field. There will be a brief celebratory plenary session alongside drinks. This is your chance to meet other participating founders, investors, and innovators.

Not matching with the investors below or are you already in touch with one or more of them? As this is a special & intimate edition hosting only 20 selected startups, we will make sure there are investors that match your profile. In case we don’t see a connection with any of the participating investors, we will personally invite a relevant investor to meet with you from our extended investor network.

For this edition, we will select 20 startups who are invited to join the full program and matchmaking. We have chosen this format to be different than our previous events to be able to facilitate the best connections and matches in an intimate setting.
If you’re not selected, your ticket will be refunded and you are not able to participate in this editions program. We do save your profile which will be shared with the investors and partners to facilitate relevant connections outside the event framework.
Capital Tour reserve the final say in the selection process and refund policy. Eventbrite’s fee is non-refundable.
