Young and talented? There’s one week left to apply for the T500!

At TNW, we feel young tech talent could use some extra attention. Arts, advertising, design: all of these disciplines have created awards for newbies in the field. However youngsters in tech seem to have been forgotten when it comes to showcasing their achievements.

To help you out, and together with our partners Picnic, Accenture & Young Creators, we’ve introduced the T500: a list of the five hundred most inspiring under 25s across all fields of Dutch digital. Entrepreneurs, digital designers, coders and academic researchers: if your work is remarkable, now is the time to expose your talent..

What is in it for you?

The T500 is a great way to be recognised by potential employers, clients and partners as one of the country’s leading young experts – but it’s not just about personal branding.

All talents that make it onto the list will receive full access to TNW Conference 2017 in Amsterdam on May 18 and 19. That means you’ll get to see all of our great speakers (like the Snapchat’s Chief Strategy Office and the CEO and Co-founder of 9GAG), receive full access to our networking tools and parties, and even take part in special meet and greet sessions with speakers – exclusively for T500 members. What’s not to like about two days of inspiration and networking with industry leaders from all over the world?

You’ll also be invited to take part in our Talent Sessions during the conference: an opportunity to meet with employees from the biggest brands in tech, who are there to tell you all about their learnings, mistakes and career paths.

T500 talents will also automatically become members of the T500 and get access to cool, inspiring events all year around.

In short: You’re already doing an amazing job and we’re there to help you boost your career even more!

How does it work?

If you think you’ve got what it takes to be one of the top 500 under-25 tech talents in the Netherlands, 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 announce our 500 incredible young innovators at Europe’s leading technology festival this May…
