Meal and Deal for Impact Startups

Amsterdam Capital Week and TNW X share a common goal: creating a connected tech ecosystem and connecting entrepreneurs to human, financial and social capital. As is now tradition, TNW X will celebrate its birthday by bringing the most promising tech startups, scale-ups and forward thinking corporates around the dinner table to spark deals and new partnerships.

They’re looking for awesome impact startups to join corporates at the dinner table. After each course, you’ll switch seats to ensure you meet at least 3 different companies (and many more!) For each signed deal, you'll open a bottle of champagne, on the house. You’ll need to apply for this event.
