At TNW, we believe that great ideas and ambition should not be hindered by geographical and financial barriers. That's why we created TNW Ignite.
TNW Ignite is a search for the world's fifty most promising early stage (pre-seed) startups. We use our global network to find hidden gems that will shape the future of a number of key industries.
We're looking for startups in the following industries:
The fifty winners will receive an opportunity to showcase their innovative solutions in front of the global tech scene. They will partake in our tailor-made Ignite Program, which includes full access to the conference, as well as a booth to exhibit on the business floor, 1-on-1 meetings with seasoned investors, leading corporates, and finally a range of exclusive side-events.
The TNW Conference is a prime event for startups to make major leaps forward. On May 9 & 10 of this year, we are welcoming 17,500 tech lovers to our new venue at the NDSM-wharf in Amsterdam. Among them are a 1000+ investors, 7000+ companies and 350+ media outlets. Together, they meet more than 30,000 times during the Conference and generate over 100 million social media impressions.
We believe events like TNW Conference and the opportunities they bring should be accessible to everyone. Any great tech conference should represent and be inspired by the global state of tech, not just tech in the more privileged regions of the world. IGNITE looks for high potential startups that can't make it to the Conference due to financial or geographical barriers, and takes those barriers away.
Winners receive three priority tickets to TNW Conference. Additional tickets can be bought.
