Capital Tour XXL

Featured image

Join us for the 4th edition of Capital Tour XXL in Amsterdam on September 28th, 2017!

150 startup founders will hop on their bikes to visit all kinds of investors at their HQs in Amsterdam. In a group of around 12 startups, you will visit three investors at their offices. Each visit lasts 50 minutes and will be moderated by a tour guide from the startup community.

What can you expect?
- Explore the world of startup funding in Amsterdam in just one afternoon.
- Find out how investors think and what they are looking for.
- Get a chance to informally connect with relevant investors in the field.

The participating investors are all established Business Angels, VCs, Corporate Venture Funds and other finance wizards, willing to open their doors to startup founders looking for funding. The visits consist of an open Q&A session where you and your fellow startups can ask the investors everything you want to know about the funding process. From the must-have essentials to include in your pitch deck, to what to wear at your first meeting with an investor. At every visit, there is also room for three startups to give a one-minute pitch.

This is your chance to get answers to all your funding questions, find out how investors think, what they're looking for & which type of investment is right for your startup.

Hope to see you September 28th!

Amsterdam Capital Week

Featured image

From 25th until the 29th of September Amsterdam will offer a full week program with over 20 events, focusing on connecting all types of capital with both national and international startups and fast-growing scale-up companies. Last year Amsterdam Capital Week hosted over 500 worldwide investors, and over 2500 startups in various maturity phases.

Amsterdam Capital Week’s aim is to tailor and match all types of capital supply and demand: VC’s and investors get together, while first time angel investors learn do’s and don’ts about seed investments on an island. Early stage startups pitch their ideas to relevant parties and learn how to get funding. And later stage scale-ups are invited to discuss overseas scaling strategies with arrived entrepreneurs and serial investors. By doing so, Amsterdam Capital Week strengthens the ties to every actor in the Startup- and Investment ecosystem. Seeking purpose by making meaningful connections. Being surprisingly impactful.
