FAQ – Startup Fest Europe

Startup Fest Europe is a nation wide festival that helps startups grow faster by bringing together founders, investors, business leaders and developers around specific themes (or industry verticals).

Startup Fest Europe 2017 will take place from 26 – 28 September 2017.

In June 2017 the procedure for signing up will start.

The goal is to help European startups to get funding deals, network and talent.

Startup Fest Europe was initiated by Startup Delta after consultations in early 2015 with leaders of the Dutch startup eco system. Constantijn van Oranje chaired these consultations and invited 75 leaders of the Dutch startup community to voice their views on how to create a true “West Coast of Europe” and bring international VCs and startups to the Netherlands.

Startups can join different events during Startup Fest. Each participating event will have their own conditions to enter, join or visit.

Of course not! Startup Fest Europe is a matchmaking event for startups from Europe and those that want to enter the European market. As such there are no geographical limitations for startups who want to participate.

Students from all directions and levels of education can join different events during Startup Fest. Each participating event will have its own conditions to enter, join or visit.

The Netherlands was wholly “taken over” by startup events, startup news and startup matches being made in the last week of May, 2016. As such, national and international media paid lots of attention to all the events happening all over the country in one way or another. Take a look at the press page to see some of the highlights.
