In the past ten years, TNW Conference has grown into one of Europe’s most prominent events for investors to discover new startups and source new deals. Last year, more than 700 investors from over 300 venture capital funds attended, resulting in 3,800 pre-booked meetings with startups and scaleups. Whether you're looking for early stage or more mature companies to add to your portfolio, you'll meet them at TNW.



As an investor, meeting startups and other VCs are the top two reasons for attending TNW Conference – so we're providing you with curated startup matchmaking tailored to your market interests, expertise and fund size.

To do this, we combine our best in-class event scheduling platform with incredibly enriched company data, provided by It seems to work: last year, meetings organised via the platform received some of the highest satisfaction ratings ever recorded at a European event.
