In 2006, founders Boris and Patrick were looking for a tech event to showcase their new startup.
When they couldn’t find one that checked all the boxes they decided to host their own.
As they were organizing things, they soon realized they needed somewhere to promote the conference, and that’s how thenextweb.com was launched.
It later became a blog and the result is what you are looking at right now.
TNW was started to bring insight, meaning—and every now and again, the lulz—to the world of technology. But we didn’t want to stop there. Today the company has grown from those two parts to four pillars that brought forth TNW News, TNW Deals, TNW Conference and Events, our new tech hub called TQ and Index, our market intelligence platform.
There’s a large and growing group of people who take a special interest in technology. This is what we call Generation T.
Their need for information, data and personal connections is increasing.
TNW is a future-proof tech media company that focuses on this cross-generational group and helps them get the most out of technology by informing them through remarkable stories and insights, and by bringing them together through extraordinary events and workspaces.
