TNW Conference 2022 • Amsterdam

Where startups scale

As part of TNW for Startups, you have the chance to be selected to battle it out and gain even more exposure at Europe's most intimate tech festival.

Showcase your startup in front of our investor and corporate exec judges who will choose the top early-stage and late-stage startups at the TNW Conference 2022. The judges will evaluate pitches on investment readiness, innovative market opportunity, the strength of the business concept/model, and overall wow factor.

Here’s your chance to get your pitch deck in front of active investors. Even if you’re not actively fundraising now, start building your investor pipeline for the future. Our judges have a wide network that can help grow your business.
