The Netherlands' Biggest Matchmaking Event Goes INTIMATE! WorldStartup is taking over the organisation of 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.
What does Capital Tour look like in its most curated form while prioritizing intimacy, connection and experience?
WHAT CAN YOU EXPECT?
➔ Explore the world of Capital in just one afternoon
➔ Find out how investors think and what they are looking for
➔ Get a chance to informally connect with the most relevant investors in your field
WHO IS IT FOR?
We are choosing 20 of the most promising Dutch and International startups that are already doing business in The Netherlands around the following themes, for this edition:
- Sustainability & Circularity
- Climate & Nature
- Food & Agritech
Whether you’re raising investment right now or just looking to explore opportunities and warm up to 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 up to 10 investors specifically from these areas, making the matchmaking tailor-made to your needs.
WHO WILL YOU MEET?
We want to make sure startups get the opportunity to set up meetings with relevant VCs, angel investors, and capital experts. Based on your investment status and the investors who accept your meeting requests made with the help of Networktables.com, you will be able to create your personal ‘Tour de Funding’.
RIDING THE WAVE OF CHANGE
Almost all startup matchmaking events are the same – poor overview of business opportunities, irrelevant introductions and stressful atmosphere that is not really helping you to build those meaningful connections you’re looking for. We do this differently by:
➔ Encouraging founders to leave their laptops at home and focus on connecting with the investors instead
➔ Empowering investors to look beyond financial models and permutations
➔ Curating matches and high-quality profiles allow both investors and founders to pack several months’ worth of work into one afternoon
