Event description

Description

A curated group of purpose driven early and late stage startup founders meet virgin & angel investors in a spectacular setting.

As Startup Envoy Prince Constantijn puts it:

"Angel Island combines the best of Amsterdam - boats, DJs, a fortress, crazy creative people - with the coolest international crowd of founders and investors."

An island next to Amsterdam packed with angel investors, global influencers, and startups - that’s Angel Island, the exclusive unconference.

"It has given us the amazing opportunity to connect with angel investors in an informal setting, which resulted in an investment within 60 days." - Angel Island Participant 2016

Why are we building the Angel Island community?

On one hand, there is the funding gap and on the other hand there is still much to be done on the front of getting angels & founders information-enabled and connected. It will happen eventually, but we want to kickstart this movement and get that first hand knowledge sharing going.

The toughest feat for a startup is not to find that first angel. It’s how to find one that either understands that there is no role other than that as funder, or (even better) find that particular angel that adds, as well as money, specific value in that early stage. These angels also provide a ‘stamp of approval’ which allows for even better investors to step into the game later on in their lifecycle.


"I’ll put it this way. Sea fort on a tiny island packed with cool people? Are you KIDDING ME? #awesome!" — Dan Taylor, Heisenberg Media.

Check out the aftermovie of Angel Island 2016 here.

Last year, there were no pitches, no keynote speakers, nor any name tags. Everything was about entering conversations without strategizing beforehand. Participants confessed that it was a rough, quite mysterious, extremely adventurous, but deliberating setting which took everyone back to the origins of bonding.

This year, Angel Island will continue with its success recipe, adding new elements to reach once more the goal - connecting on a meaningful level and having insightful, straightforward conversations with the right people at the right moment.
