Impact Capital Tour





Join us for a collaboration between WorldStartup, Capital Tour, and ImpactCity, setting the stage for an exciting kick-off event just one day before the main event.

Building on the success of our collaboration with ImpactCity in The Hague last year, we've decided to rekindle the magic with another impact-driven version of the Capital Tour. Our focus remains steadfast: cultivating meaningful, thoughtfully curated connections in relaxed, informal settings.

What to Expect:

🌟 Immerse yourself in the world of capital in just one afternoon.
🌟 Gain insights into the minds of investors and discover what they're seeking.
🌟 Enjoy the opportunity to casually connect with the most relevant investors in your field.

Who Is This Event For?

For this edition, we're selecting more than 15 of the most promising Dutch and international startups already or planning to operate in the Netherlands, and engaged in the following themes:

🌿 Biodiversity
🌍 Nature-based solutions
🌾 Food & Agriculture

Whether you're actively seeking investment or simply exploring opportunities and warming up to potential investors for future funding rounds, you're eligible to participate. This means you have a full-time team, a well-defined product-market fit, a clear competitive edge, and proven traction, which could be substantial revenue, paid pilot programs, or previous investment rounds. You'll have the chance to meet up to 10 investors specifically focused on these areas, ensuring tailored matchmaking to meet your needs.

What can you expect?

Join us for an event that's sure to elevate your business prospects! Meet investors, ecosystem partners, and founders and get a chance to book 1-on-1 meetings with investors - all in one afternoon.

Riding the Wave of Change:

Most startup matchmaking events follow a familiar script - a lacklustre overview of business prospects, irrelevant introductions, and a stressful atmosphere that doesn't foster meaningful connections. Here's how we're doing things differently:

🚫 We encourage founders to leave their laptops at home and concentrate on building connections with investors.
🔍 We empower investors to look beyond financial models and equations.
🏝️ We offer founders the opportunity to choose the settings for their informal meetings.
🎯 We curate matches and create high-quality profiles, allowing both investors and founders to achieve several months' worth of work in just one afternoon.
