FAQ – StartupFest Europe

How does matchmaking work during StartupFest Europe?

StartupFest Europe is all about matchmaking: we want to bring together startups and scale-ups with investors and launching customers. To be sure this matchmaking succeeds, we work together with Networktables: most of the StartupFest Europe events use this online tool.

Startup or scale-up? After buying your ticket for an event (which is using Networktables), you’ll receive a invitation to register for Networktables. Your information will be shared with investors attending the same event: if an investor finds your profile interesting, he/she will you send an invitation for a meet up. It’s as easy as that!
