What is Angel Island
The unconference that changes the way entrepreneurs and investors work together occurs for the second year in a row on September 26th in Amsterdam.
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.
The one-day event takes 200 (angel) investors, 100 global influencers, and 200 startup founders on an island with the aim to create meaningful relationships that will help each other progress and disrupt industries.
As Ton van ‘t Noordende puts it: I’ve travelled to more than 30 cities in Europe in the past 8 months and I’ve seen the same issue all across the board.
Founders still spend a lot of time trying to find that first round of informal funding and – unfortunately – often don’t realize they need to do their due diligence as well.
We’re here to break open those informal networks and get that firsthand knowledge sharing going’.
A unique format built to empower the European early-stage tech community.
This years’ edition of Angel Island isn’t focused on growing the unconference, it’s built to improve conditions between angels & founders.
The unconference will start on sailing boats, will continue on an island situated in the middle of the sea, and, as the grand finale, will have an exclusive party.
The Angel Island team values the immediate interaction between angel investors and founders. Therefore, they will break the ice right after stepping foot on the sailing ship, where the participants meet their personalized crews composed of founders and angels. On the island, groups with common interests will be locked together in the fortress and will be encouraged to have open conversations on hot topics.
