If you’re in the early stages of your company, every penny counts. It makes a lot of sense to go to 2-3 leading industry events per year where you meet your (future) clients, investors, partners, mentors and bring home the bacon, while getting actionable insights for your startup and having fun with your colleagues. But when you are at the point of buying the tickets, you don’t know yet how to make it to the next pay day, you might skip that ‘pay now’ button. I get it, I’ve been in that situation myself.
Last week I was chatting with Volta Ventures, a seed and early stage VC, focussing on Internet and software companies in the Benelux. They want to support young founders of early stage companies. Over 2 Belgian beers we came up with a program to visit TNW Conference as a guest of Volta Ventures.
Volta Ventures is selecting 10 startups to join them to TNW Conference. If you fit the criteria, sign up today.
Who can join?
- You are a tech founder under 30 years old
- You are based in The Netherlands, Belgium or Luxemburg
- You run a bootstrapped or angel funded startup
- You’re looking to raise funding in the next year
- You like Belgian beer*
* or pretend to like it when it’s offered to you
The startups that are selected by Volta Ventures are invited to join them to TNW Conference and during the conference they will sit down with the managing partners to discuss if there is a match and a potential funding opportunity.
