Pitch Meet Learn
Key words for events are ‘Pitch’, ‘Meet’ and ‘Learn’ with plenty of pitching competitions, meetups, social drinks and workshops. True crowd pleasers are Uprise Startup Festival and the first ever live crowdfunding festival Crowdf€st: both events combine creating a stage for innovative startups with festival ingredients like music, art, food and drink. Amsterdam Capital Week has carefully crafted an international program, with startups from as far as Kenya joining for the Impact Amsterdam – Nairobi Expedition. Global events Capital On Stage, Get in the Ring, and the HandsOn TV Startup Tour all host their event during Amsterdam Capital Week. The Dutch flavour in the program is added with Capital XXL, a bike tour visiting different investors and successful businesses like Peerby, Thuisbezorgd and Mendix, and an exclusive VC boat tour through Amsterdam’s canals.
Amsterdam Capital Week is the actualization of one of the fifteen measures drawn up in the StartupAmsterdam action programme. StartupAmsterdam aims to get Amsterdam in the top 3 of Europe’s startup hubs; capital for startups is an essential factor in desired growth. Amsterdam Capital Week is organized to increase the availability of growth capital in the Netherlands. The week unites different existing events in the startup scene that work towards connecting capital and startups. Amsterdam Capital Week is to be organized each year.
