What is Angel Island
The unconference that changes the way entrepreneurs and investors work together occurs for the third year in a row on September 26th, 2018 in Amsterdam.
In 2018, this 100% curated unconference brings together:
- 250 investors – partner level angels & venture capitalists
- 150 founders – start-ups, scale-ups, unicorns & zebras
- 100 original thinkers – ecosystem builders, city leaders, media & more
Breaking the traditional pitching and investor meetings, Angel Island connects the unconnected and brings together the bravest and the most brilliant minds every year to combine the resources that will contribute to a sustainable future.
“Angel Island is a unique experience. Sail, meet, connect, build businesses and have fun with the most remarkable people. Enjoy the best of Amsterdam!”
Constantijn van Oranje
As Ton van ‘t Noordende, CEO of 01 Ventures & founder of Angel Island, puts it: We’re here to break open the informal networks and get that firsthand knowledge sharing going’. We believe it takes an entire ecosystem to bring up the next Spotify’s and Adyen’s of Europe where the size of the network contributing to the success of these companies matters. 2018 is about achieving the biggest impact of the program by uniting most relevant brilliant minds in one place in a unique setting.
A unique format reshaping the European investment scene & providing a safe haven for founders, investors, and community builders alike.
In our first edition, we brought founders face to face with the angel investors that could fund their ventures. In our second year, we brought them the European network of influencers that could grow their scope. This year, we will bring a fully customized experience for the entrepreneurs, and a curated ground for international collaboration amongst the most influential minds.
Ton van ‘t Noordende, CEO of 01 Ventures & founder of Angel Island, explains the updated concept: “This year we’re working towards a framework that will enable the founders on a whole new level, not just funding related. We ask the founders who they would most want to meet and then we will do our best to bring those people to the island.”
We assume that they will name publicly well known individuals such as Tim Cook (Apple), Niklas Zennstrom (Skype), Sheryl Sandberg (Facebook), Neelie Kroes (Non exec. board member Salesforce, Advisory Board Uber), as well as tech industry insiders such as Demis Hassabis (Deepmind), Anne Wojcicki (23andme), and top-level investors; Deep Nishar (Softbank Vision Fund) and Kathryn Haun (Andreessen Horowitz) but we are open to finding anyone.
