Dutch entrepreneurs, digital designers, coders, and academic researchers: if your work is kick-ass, we want to hear from you. After last year’s incredible success, the T500 program is back. We want to continue recognising and celebrating young digital talent – so we’re once again looking for the 500 most exciting tech superstars under 26 in the Netherlands.
Companies are always on the lookout for fresh minds, which is why the T500 is a great chance to connect with digital giants. No company recognises this better than Accenture, who joins us as co-hosts of our competition to shine a spotlight on the future leaders of tech. To help us build the best program for our talent, we’re also joined by Young Creators – a foundation that is dedicated to supporting ambitious young minds in the Netherlands.
What’s in it for you?
The T500 is a great way to be recognised by future employers and partners – but it’s not just about personal branding.
Everyone who makes it onto the list will receive a conference pass to TNW Conference 2018 in Amsterdam on May 24 and 25. That means you’ll get to see all of our great speakers (like the CEO of 9GAG and the CTO of Reddit), receive full access to our networking tools and parties, and take part in our roundtable Talent Sessions during the conference. This is your chance to meet with experts from the biggest brands in tech, and hear about their digital journeys. We can’t think of a better way to get inspired, expand your network, and flaunt your skills.
In short: You’re awesome and we want to help boost your career!
How does it work?
Applications are now open. If you think you’ve got what it takes to join the T500, simply fill in this form so we can assess your experience and skills. All entrants will be carefully judged by a panel of industry-leading experts, and we’ll let you know in early May if you’ve been selected. To celebrate, an exclusive T500 party will be hosted in your honor before the conference.
You have until April 27th to apply, so get going!
