Early-stage startup? You’re in the right place

Last year we consolidated a decade's worth of startup competitions and learnings into Boost – a program dedicated to accelerating the growth of early-stage companies. Since our first edition, we’ve seen participants secure excellent media coverage, influential new customers and millions of dollars in funding.

For a small fee, startups that are selected for the program will be provided with an exhibitors stand in our business area and three full conference passes, as well as the opportunity for selection to pitch on stage, a mention in a TNW blog post, curated investor meetings and many more perks.
