Event description


Expectations are over 1800 people from the Netherlands will go to the Web Summit in Lisbon this year. StartupDelta, DutchBasecamp, NathanAzopardi and Venture Café all thought it would be awesome to get to know each other before the main event to connect, share and learn from experienced participants in previous editions.

So on Thursday October 13th we are joining forces for a national Pre-Web Summit meetup. The event will be part of the spectacular opening celebration of Venture Café and CIC in Rotterdam including distinguished guests: Startup Envoy Prince Constantijn van Oranje and Rotterdam Mayor Ahmed Aboutaleb and the innovation community at large.

Join us for an informal evening of drinks and networking and practical workshops that will kickstart your Web Summit experience! All ticket owners, speakers, exhibitors, volunteers and anyone considering going to the Web Summit in Lisbon are welcome.
