AMSTERDAM, May 17, 2017 /PRNewswire/ —
The Startup League, a unique startup-support program by Radix, the world’s 3rd largest domain portfolio registry, has partnered with TNW Conference to give 100% sponsorship to 15 innovative startups for their startup-booth at the conference. The conference has four startup tracks: Bootstrap, Boost, Scale and Impact. Startup League and TNW together launched the ‘Tickets to Boost’ program in February 2017 to select 15 startups to exhibit for the Boost track for free.
As part of the 100% sponsorship, the selected startups get a free Startup Exhibitor Table at the TNW Conference along with two free attendee tickets. Curated face-to-face meetings with investors and an opportunity to pitch the startup on stage are also included in the program. The package, which would otherwise cost 1299 EUR, will be available for free to the 15 startups. In addition, free branded goodies like t-shirts, giveaways, etc., will also be provided to them.
The chosen startups are from 11 different countries across various business sectors. From outer space to AI, from robotics to social media; all the chosen startups are disruptive in their own space, the list includes www.flatlay.store (US), www.planable.tech (Romania), www.onesite.website (Netherlands), www.zero2infinity.space (Spain), www.eyeware.tech (Switzerland), www.dadi.tech (UK), www.xpectraltek.tech (Portugal), www.youclap.tech (Portugal), www.posibillian.tech (Paraguay), www.bonvoyage.site (Luxembourg), www.blockrockingbeats.space (Netherlands), www.own.space (Germany), www.treatmeathome.online (US) and www.igetfit.online (Russia). All of these startups will be present at the TNW Conference on 18th-19th May, 2017.
Speaking about the initiative, Boris Veldhuijzen van Zanten, CEO & Founder of The Next Web, said, “Startups that have exhibited at TNW Conference in the past have received massive exposure to investors and tech community. With Startup League, we are raising the game for 15 select startups by giving them 100% sponsored exhibit. This is going to create a huge impact on their visibility globally; making a big difference to some of the most innovative startups of our time.”
Since the time Startup League was launched in August 2016, it has assisted 68 startups for 12 events around the world, including Web Summit, Tech Day NY, TechCrunch Disrupt, SXSW, and CES. This is the first time that the league is sponsoring so many varied startups at Europe’s leading tech fest with 100% sponsorship. Speaking about the program, Suman Das, Director, Startup League, said, “We are excited to support such extraordinary startups for TNW Conference, the biggest fest of its kind in the whole of Europe. It’s a great opportunity for the selected startups to fuel their growth plans by engaging with the best partners in the tech and startup community. Add to that, the face-time that they stand to get with investors, this is really a dream come true for the selected 15 startups.”
While the startups selected through the Tickets to Boost program will get 100% sponsorship, any other startup which is part of the Startup League can still get access to 25% sponsorship to exhibit at TNW Conference.
For the upcoming Web Summit in Lisbon, Startup League is sponsoring 5 startup booths worth EUR 850 each. Besides, a sponsorship of 40% will be available to any startup over and above the chosen 5. Startups exhibiting at Web Summit Lisbon through Startup League will enjoy a multitude of benefits such as investor meetings, free access to startup workshops, investor office hours, mentor hours, free branded goodies and t-shirts as well as EUR 100 towards travel expenses incurred for coming to the event.
