Techilicious: Live dining and deal making delivers more than 70 deals!

We were in for something special: on May 25, 2016. Europe’s largest tech incubator YES!Delft was transformed into an extraordinary restaurant, where the most promising tech startups and corporates dined together. This exclusive event gave selected startups and tech Captains of Industry the unique opportunity to bridge the gap and join forces to fuel success.

Over 40 C-level business leaders of Dutch corporates made use of the opportunity to dine with 50 founders of promising startups. They dined to make deals at YES!Delft’s Techilicious, and more than 70 deals were made. From pilots to market introductions and development deals. The investment of €100,000.- by Microsoft into Grwo was the icing on the cake. It was the perfect follow-up of earlier events such as YES!Delft Network event – Manifest of Delft and the How to get there Summit.
