In the first edition, Angel Island brought founders face to face with the Angel Investors that could fund their ventures. In our second year, they brought them the European network of influencers that could grow their scope. This year, Angel Island will bring a fully customized experience for the entrepreneurs, and a curated ground for international collaboration amongst the world's most influential minds.
The unconference that changes the way entrepreneurs and investors work together occurs for the third year in a row on September 26th in Amsterdam
Angel Island - A safe heaven for the most brilliant minds in tech
Angel Island connects the unconnected and brings together the bravest and the most brilliant minds every year to combine the resources that will contribute to a sustainable future. This time also per your request.
A unique format reshaping the European investment scene & providing a safe haven for founders, investors, and community builders alike.
Ton van ‘t Noordende, CEO of 01Ventures & founder of Angel Island, explains the updated concept: “This year we’re working towards a framework that will enable the founders (and guests) on a whole new level, not just funding related. We ask the founders...
Who they would most want to meet and then we will do our best to bring those people to the island.”
We assume that they will name publicly well known individuals such as Tim Cook (Apple), Niklas Zennstrom (Skype), Sheryl Sandberg (Facebook), Neelie Kroes (Non exec. board member Salesforce, Advisory Board Uber), as well as tech industry insiders such as Demis Hassabis (Deepmind), Anne Wojcicki (23andme), and top-level investors; Deep Nishar (Softbank Vision Fund) and Kathryn Haun (Andreessen Horowitz) but we are open to finding anyone.
Who has already confirmed?
You can expect to meet the partners from VC's like Insight VP, Atomico, OpenOcean, Lakestar, Cherry Ventures and CVC's like SAP and Samsung Ventures. As well as media reps from Forbes, VentureBeat, CNBC, Wallstreet Journal, Tech Eu, NRC, Business Insider and more.
