Every year, TNW’s Startup Liaison team interview hundreds of early-stage companies in preparation for TNW Conference in Amsterdam. Across our four programs, we host more than 250 young startups that come to exhibit to an audience of 12,500 decision makers, pitch to high-profile judges, and take part in curated matchmaking.

Sadly, every year we’re also disappointed that a handful of truly interesting companies are unable to join us due to a lack of financial support. Providing a high-quality exhibition stand, building a three-floor pitch tower and paying startup support staff isn’t cheap – but it still pains us to turn away companies simply because they can’t cover these costs.

So when Radix approached us asking for ways in which their new startup-support program Startup League could help, we had the perfect solution.

In February 2017 we launched Tickets to Boost, a campaign to find 14 amazing startups that would get to exhibit at TNW Conference for free – courtesy of Startup League. As part of the 100% sponsorship, each startup received a free exhibition stand, two free tickets and access to our curated matchmaking with investors, mentors and brands.

We love it when a conference partnership likes this results in real measurable value for attendees or startups, and we hope each of the 14 companies enjoyed their complimentary TNW Conference experience. If you’d like to be kept updated on any future opportunities like this for your startup, simply leave your email address here.
