#1 Texas-Netherlands Pitch & Connect on Wednesday
#2 Upstream Event on Friday
I hope you all had a great weekend. I wanted to share with you a couple of exciting events that are coming up this week.
Texas-Netherlands Pitch & Connect
When: Wednesday, April 28th at 10am -12:30pm ET
This is an exclusive event that I’ve been working on with the Dutch Consulate in the U.S., Creative Holland, and T-Squared. We’re having eleven of the top Dutch startups and scaleups pitch and connect with Texan and non-coastal investors.
I’ve been getting to know these companies over the past few weeks and have been really impressed with what each are building. Most are raising between $2-5 million and are looking to expand to the United States.
If you are an investor not based on the coasts and are interested in attending this event, please shoot me an email. There will be investor networking and the opportunity to meet these incredible founders. I would love to invite you.
If you are located on the coasts and would like to hear the pitches live, we’re going to be livestreaming to NBSO’s account here.
If any of these companies look interesting and relevant after you’ve attended or heard their pitch, please contact me and I can connect you to the founders.
Upstream Investor / Founder Meetup with Michael Ronen, Founder of Branded
When: Friday, April 30th at 4pm ET / 1pm PT
Michael Ronen is the founder of Branded and a former Managing Partner of Softbank. Branded is a fund that’s focused on acquiring and partnering with Amazon businesses. I don’t think we’ve discussed Amazon yet on Upstream, so it should be a fun conversation.
For those that haven't been before, it's a 25-30 minute event total (10-15 minute chat with Michael + 15-20 minute of three 1on1 video matches with other attendees). It's a great way to meet people and learn.
Thanks for reading! New episode tomorrow!
