Program 2018 – The Xclusive Edition

25 September 2018 // Amsterdam

The match is on at Capital Tour Xclusive!

Last year we focused on facilitating more qualitative matches between startups & investors during the first Xclusive edition of Capital Tour XXL. On September 25th we opened up our network with the help of Giving founders the opportunity to create their personal ‘Tour de Funding’ and make meaningful connections with relevant investors.

[11: 30-13: 00] Kick-off @ Scheepvaart Museum Amsterdam

This year we’re kicking off the first Xclusive edition of Capital Tour XXL  where the entrepreneurial spirit all started, at the  Scheepvaart Museum Amsterdam! Kickstart your day with other like-minded startups before you head off to meet investors. Do not miss out on the inspiring keynote and welcome speeches to pump you up for the day!


Also, filmmakers Erik Loots & Linda Vermaat will officially launch the brand new documentary series ‘Fix the World and Make Money’! Sharing the inspiring stories of six social entrepreneurs who are tackling global challenges all over the world. Be there, or be square!

[13:00 – 16:00] #TourdeFunding along potential investors

Hop on your bike to visit the investor (s) who you find a match with. How does this work? Prior to the event, we will open up our network with the help of NetworkTables. On their platform, you’ll be able to connect with the participating investors and send a personal meeting request to the investor that you find to be a potential fit (and vice-versa). Only if the investors accept your meeting request(s), the meeting will take place at the investor’s office in Amsterdam during the event.


In an intimate group setting, you will visit VCs at their office for a chance to connect and learn. No match? Don’t worry! You will automatically be registered for the “How to Get Funding” workshop by Symbid and Amsterdam Venture Partners and learn from investors how you can prepare for your next meeting.


Tip: Do your homework and figure out beforehand what you would like to ask the investors. You will only have one time to make a good impression!

[16: 30-17: 30] 1-on-1 with Angel Investors & Roundtable Sessions @ QO Amsterdam

Together with all participating startups, we gather at QO Amsterdam. Here you’ll have the chance to meet 1-on-1 with angel investors during short interactions of 15 minutes per round.

Next, to the speed date sessions, you are also able to join several open round table discussions hosted by investors & influencers from the startup investment scene.


[17:30 – 19:30] Networking Drinks & Bites @ QO Amsterdam

This is your time to put to use what you learned on the tour. 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!
