Launchpad Meetups 2016

In the tech world, it’s commonly believed that startups and corporations cannot form mutually beneficial relationships – ultimately, one would have to buy the other out, right?

Not necessarily – we firmly believe that startups and corporates have a lot to learn, and gain, from one another, and that the deep-rooted disconnect between the two is no longer applicable. That’s why we’re proud to present the third annual Launchpad Meetups – small, powerful events with a mission to connect disrupting startups with Amsterdam’s finest corporates.

Launchpad meetups give promising startups the opportunity to pitch their disruptive ideas inside the board rooms of corporates to help them solve important innovation challenges; the corporates’ decision makers will be present, eager to collaborate with you. In May, some of the biggest Amsterdam-based corporates will once again open the doors to their Dutch headquarters in order to host one-of-a-kind meetups with startups.

Last year, we organised 22 meetups, and this year we’re looking to more than triple that number.Our network partners KPMG, KLM, Amsterdam Marketing, and Holland Fintech have enabled us to secure some amazing corporates:  

ABN Amro

Ahold

Charco & Dique

Following last year’s huge success, we’re looking to make the upcoming Launchpad Meetups bigger and better than ever before. So if you’re a corporate seeking innovative solutions from up and coming startups, or you’re a startup looking for a corporate company as a potential (launch) customer or test-bed, the Launchpad Meetups are for you.
