Why you should be there

Inspirational talks

Connect with investors, corporates & founders

1-on-1 curated matchmaking

1) ADDRESS GLOBAL CHALLENGES

Where most people only see the problems society has to face in the coming decades, entrepreneurs often see new business opportunities in the same challenges ahead. During CapitalFest we want to find new solutions in emerging industries. We expect both founders and investors to put their money where their mouth is.

2) MAKE MEANINGFUL CONNECTIONS

Network-power is key in conquering the opportunities ahead. We need to fix the disconnect across European borders to spread powerful knowledge, capital and leverage international ties of tech-trade. We’re fixing it in Amsterdam.

3) FIX THE FOUNDER/FUNDER DISCONNECT

We are driven by passionate entrepreneurs, an assload of fun and offering the combined powers of a European network to the tech-head who’s about to change the world with a big (probably batshit crazy) idea.

Feel we’re talking about you?

Make it to Amsterdam on the 27th of September. It’s about time to play hard.

Let's make it meaningful: 1-on-1 investor/founder matchmaking

We believe that big ideas deserve big investments. We carefully curate all founder attendees with a VC panel of 40 Dutch venture firms. Through the matchmaking system of our partner NetworkTables, we can match rated founder profiles to investors, based on their industry, maturity phase, team and company culture.

Global challenges, startup solutions

  Let’s face it, in the coming decades we have major global challenges ahead. What will the future of mobility, payments, news, food, intelligence or industry look like? How will we thrive as a global tribe? We believe startups will bring the answers. Startups can change the world. And they will.
