Taco Carlier, founder of the hip Amsterdam bicycle brand VanMoof, will give the main keynote. VanMoof recently expressed the ambition to sell a total of 10 million e-bikes in five years. To grow faster, VanMoof raised more than $182 million in investments over the past two years. Since their start in 2009, they have gone through all stages of growth and want to become a global player in the electric bicycle market.

Maurice van Tilburg of Techleap, responsible for the government-wide startup and scale-up policy, will then lead a panel discussion. At the table are Maarten Raaijmakers from Tiqets (online tickets for museums and attractions), Tom Griffioen from Clappform (data analytics platform for the built environment) and keynote speaker Taco Carlier. Under the leadership of Van Tilburg, they enter into a discussion and discuss topics such as ambition, innovation and (international) impact.

After the substantive program there is plenty of opportunity to catch up and network during drinks.
