Program Rotterdam 2018

24 April 2018 // Rotterdam

Kick-off @ Rotterdam Central Station

Kickstart your day with other like minded startups before you head off to meet investors. Don’t miss an inspiring keynote and welcome speeches to pump you up for the day at Venture Café.

Bike tour from investor to investor

Hop on your bike to visit investors and other finance wizards at their HQ’s in the city of Rotterdam. In groups of ten, your guide will lead the way for you and fellow startups to a selection of three of the most relevant investors for an informal Q&A. Tip: Do your homework and figure out beforehand what you would like to ask the investors!

Drinks and Networking Dinner @ Venture Café

This is your time to put to use what you learned on the tour and in your Q&A’s. Follow up with the investors you’ve met during the day and get ready for some new introductions. Dive deeper with the investors and have those important conversations!
