A great connection is like a marriage. It all starts with a first date.

According to the Guinness World Records, the World’s Largest Business Speed Dating event took place at JCI Limburg event with 1,068 people in 2014. 

Together with sTARTUp Day, we’re bringing together at least 1,074 visitors, startups, investors & executives for an epic speed dating record attempt on August 25–27. All 1:1 interactions last 4 minutes and will take place on a virtual platform where you can choose your interests to ensure you meet the right people. 

Meeting slots will be split into hour-long thematic blocks. Although we recommend making the most of the entire schedule, you can jump in and join the fun whenever you can! There will be more than enough opportunities to meet the right investors, listen to up-and-coming startups pitch, network with executives, and mingle with visitors. 

Are you ready to find your perfect match? They might just change your life!

 

For me? Yes, for you!

 

Tips for startups:

Prepare! You have 4 minutes to pitch your idea and only a few seconds to make a positive first impression.
Your pitch should be prepared, efficient, and goal-oriented.
Leave time for questions. Would you like to go on a date where only your partner talks the entire time?
Before your time is up, make sure to exchange contacts to continue the discussion afterward. 

 

Investors, remember to: 

Pre-determine the aspects you’re looking for.
Be present and give your attention to each startup. This way, you don’t miss out on something life-changing.
Last but least: have fun and enjoy the fast energy of the event.

 

Executives: 

We bet it’s been a while since you’ve been able to meet old acquaintances and meet the new players in the corporate world. Speed through all of the connections in speed dating! Of course, you can continue discussions outside of the platform later on.

Although we encourage you to take part the entire hour, you can join and leave whenever you need to.
