    It’s all happening in Amsterdam this week. In addition to our conference on Thursday and Friday, and the Europioneers ceremony on Wednesday, others have scheduled events in the city too. European accelerator Startupbootcamp is currently on a world tour to meet startups and see them pitch. On Wednesday, it hits the Dutch capital.

    The idea of these pitch days are that they’re private sessions where startups can get straight and honest feedback from experienced entrepreneurs and investors on their pitch and company.

    The Next Web is a media partner for the tour and will be attending some of the pitch days to give feedback to the startups taking part. As Amsterdam is our home city, expect to see us on the panel there this week!

    If you’d like to apply, can do so via f6sthe deadline for Amsterdam is tonight, so be quick! Only the best will be selected.

    Of course, Startupbootcamp is looking for startups to take part in its accelerator programs, too. In recent notable news, its Berlin program  announced a partnership with Mercedes-Benz, HDI and Bosch. Co-founder Alex Farcet says that the partnership “will enable startups (on) the Berlin program to have a global impact on innovation, particularly in the following three areas: Connectivity, Mobility and Big Data. We hope to find them at TNW Conference.”

    Upcoming pitch days across Europe are as follows: Amsterdam (24 April), Lisbon (4 May), Barcelona (8 May), Frankfurt (8 May), Athens (9 May), Copenhagen (14 May), Berlin Online West (16 May), Berlin Online East (21 May), Berlin (23 May), Hamburg (25 May), Helsinki (28 May), Stuttgart (29 May), Oslo (30 May), Stockholm (31 May).
