PITCH TO THE DUTCH HIGH-TECH GIANTS
And Get Into the ‘Network’
Meet the Giants brings together startups with the most notable Dutch pioneers of high-tech systems.
While ‘corporate launchpad’ tops the list of clichés in startup parlance, it is no secret that pioneering companies stay ahead of the game only because they remain true to their core: innovation first. In these times of innovation battles, Eindhoven’s high-tech leaders are looking to meet their winning allies in the face of the emerging wave of high-profile startups.
October 18th is your opportunity to “get into the network” and work with powerful tech giants. “Meet the Giants” is a one-day pitch event that facilitates a meaningful introduction of high-profile startups to industry leaders like ASML, Philips and NTS-Group. You’ll sit across the table from Investment Managers, Innovation Managers, and Business Developers, and discuss your business in one-on-one sessions.
3 Minutes to Pitch
Each startup team gets the opportunity to deliver a 3-minute pitch to the expert panel and later spend dedicated time during individual feedback session to dive deeper into the multiple verticals of your business.
