Constantijn van Oranje, Special Envoy StartupDelta and co-founder Startup Fest Europe
Join Impact Startup Fest (#ImpactSF17) on the 25th & 26th of September 2017 in the city of The Hague.
The festival will focus entirely on impact startups and scaleups that are working on innovations that make the world a better place. Innovations that tackle social and global challenges take center stage.
National and international matchmaking is at the core of the event. The festival provides a creative environment in which to build bonds and bridges, establish new connections, and create new opportunities to accelerate your business. Join the conversation on how to further design this year’s programme!
The best international matches are made in a relaxing environment. Our matchmaking programme will be held at one of The Hague’s finest beach pavilions. National and international (tech) startups and scale-ups will meet with business leaders and impact investors for informal talks and drinks. The event is by invitation only but there are a few wildcards available. The ‘wildcard’ registration form will be available soon via the website.
The entire day is filled with an exciting programme with inspirational speakers, uplifting demos, pitch sessions and useful matchmaking opportunities between (tech) start-ups, investors, international organizations, developers and corporates. A special track called Emerging Markets will focus on the opportunities for entrepreneurship, innovation and impact investing.
