The Next Web (TNW) conferences are among the most prominent technology events in the world, featuring a diverse range of speakers, startups, and companies from around the globe.
Founded in 2006, TNW has become a significant player in the tech industry, with conferences held in major cities such as Amsterdam. These events provide a platform for attendees to learn, connect, and showcase their products and services.
TNW’s flagship event — TNW Conference, which takes place annually in Amsterdam, is known for its high-quality content and networking opportunities, making it a must-attend event for anyone in the tech industry.
Attendees can expect to hear from some of the most influential voices in tech, including CEOs, entrepreneurs, investors, and thought leaders. The conference program typically includes keynote speeches, fireside chats, panel discussions, and workshops on a wide range of topics, from artificial intelligence and cybersecurity to blockchain and social media.
One of the unique features of TNW conferences is the focus on startups and emerging technology. It is reflected in the conference program, which often includes startup competitions, pitch sessions, and mentoring sessions.
Another noteworthy aspect of TNW events is their commitment to diversity and inclusion. It strives to create a welcoming and inclusive environment for all attendees, regardless of identity or background.
As we are talking, Europe’s biggest tech festival is descending on the Spanish tech hub on March 30 and 31. Yes, you heard it right!
The Next Web (TNW) is travelling south to València for the ‘TNW València‘ event to connect with over 2000 like-minded spirits, showcase their business – and find new investor capital.
“As a global pre-seed firm with 300 investments, we see Spain as central to both our connectivity to Europe, and to Latin America”, says attending speaker and investor Scott Hartley, best-selling author, founder, and Managing Partner of The Fund.
“TNW Valencia has created an excellent way for us as a fund to access the rich talent and opportunity in Spain and Southern Europe. We have a deep investor and portfolio ties to the Iberian Peninsula, and are excited to double-down,” adds Hartley.
TNW València: What is it?
It’s safe to say that The Next Web (TNW) has been instrumental in shaping and amplifying the Dutch tech ecosystem. Just like what their flagship event is for Amsterdam, The Next Web aims to make TNW València the heart of Spanish tech.
To put things into perspective, TNW València expects to welcome 2000+ attendees, 300+ startups, 75+ investors, 50+ exhibitors, and 100+ speakers in its debut.
The event is powered by Financial Times and in partnership with the Valencia City Council.
But, why Valencia?
València, the city of arts and sciences, is Spain’s fastest-growing entrepreneurial ecosystem and boasts the most startups per capita anywhere in the country. Consequently, it makes the city the perfect environment for a TNW event, says TNW.
