The hurdles or startups are most often orbiting around funding. On Startup Corner, collaboration between partners, not only between startups and partners in our network. Thus, Ugoo and Bird & Bird , two of the partners in our network, teamed up and tailored to the event The Journey to Funding for the Startup Corner community.
On 9th of October, starting with 15:30, startup founders came in for The Journey to Funding event at CIC, in Rotterdam. The plan for the day was simple, meeting experts with knowledge on funding for startups.
Ferry Tillekens, our Community Manager, opened the afternoon and the three speakers.
Lex from Ugoo touched on the topic of public funding programs for the Dutch high-tech sector. He then passed the mic to Ivo Ijzerman from Bird & Bird who advised the startups on tax topics relevant to different cases. This was also an opportunity to answer relevant issues for each startup case. In the end, Frank van Buuren, also from Bird & Bird, outlines how they can start when they start and scaling their startup.
The event ended around 19:00, with many of the startups connecting with the speakers after they ended their interactive presentations.
"I found it useful to test what I know and I have." So that's helpful, "shared with us Brian Smits from Circularise . "But especially for novices, very, very much, or help to get started."
We have more events in the next weeks.
