In this world of never-ending problems and ever innovative solutions, it can be tough to make yourself seen and heard if you are the one with a solution. However, if you are a startup that believes it can make waves with its offering but need that one break or that one connection, participating in the TNW Startup Program is a no brainer.
Silicon Canals will be an official media partner for the TNW Startup Program, and if you’re thinking about participating in the program and are one of our avid readers, you are in luck.
Why TNW startup program?
The TNW Startup program is a part of the TNW Conference, which will be held this time for the fourteenth consecutive year and it is one of the biggest tech events in Europe with over 15,000 people attending it last year. The event will be held on May 9 and 10 in Amsterdam, The Netherlands, and will observe participation and knowledge dissemination by some of the top tech executives, prominent world-class speakers, and top-tier investors.
This year, over 17,500 people are expected to participate in the conference and there will be 250 exhibiting tech startups and growth companies, over 275 themed roundtable sessions, and curated startup matchmaking for investors. With the TNW Startup Program, promising startups will get an opportunity to secure new connections with corporates, mentors, investors, and media. Additionally, the program will enable budding startups to gain exclusive access to TNW’s Index-powered matchmaking platform, along with curated meetings with investors, and tickets to the side events. This event should definitely not be missed by a growing startup.

What else to expect from TNW Conference 2019?
As we already mentioned, young startups can expect a great deal of exposure and introduction with industry veterans, mentors and investors if they are present at the event. Additionally, one can attract media and investors to accelerate the growth of their pre-seeded stage startup with Ignite, which is a TNW startup program. The program aims at helping startups meet influential investors to assist in their growth strategies. TNW’s panel of investors and experts will choose five startups across ten categories, who will get a chance to scale from pre-seed to unicorn. You can sign up for Ignite here.
Startups participating in the event will also get to pitch at the event by competing in a high profile environment, in the presence of top investors. They will even get to showcase their startup at the event’s demo floor, in front of 15,000 attendees with their own booth. Additionally, one will get access to the side events, where an organisation will have more chances to form connections and find mentors. So, what are you waiting for?
