My MatchingWINGS

Meet with Nordic angel delegation in Amsterdam

From the 3rd to the 5th of March 2019, we welcome a delegation of about 25 angel investors in Amsterdam. These angel investors are members of the Nordic Business Angel Network that support cross-border investments. Nordic BAN represents 12 Nordic and Baltic angel networks and services over 2200 active cross-border angel investors.

This visit fits with matchingWINGS’ objective that business angels should actively connect with potential co-investors. In addition, the Nordic BAN demonstrates the professionalization of angel investors and stimulation pf angel investment transactions. Getting a better understanding of the Nordic BAN practices is therefore of great value.

On Monday the 4th of March, the program is focused on getting a mutual understanding on investor topics. Tuesday the 5th of March, the focus is on the Dutch start-up environment and potential investment cases. An outline of the program is provided below.

The program is open for Dutch angels. Participation is free of charge, with exception of the social program: joining the diners is at your own expense. Do you want to join the event? Please register at
