Opening the gathering is TUD alumnus and fintech entrepreneur Stijn Pieper (see bio below) who from the rooftop DJ station will talk about experiences as a founder in both Zurich and London, as well as wisdom he wish he could share in the past with his younger entrepreneur self.

This event takes place on Monday June 12th from 6:00 PM till 8:00 PM at the rooftop of Bar Elba Waterloo (walking distance from London Tech Week) and is being hosted by the alumni offices of the four technical universities of the Netherlands in collaboration with the 4TU.Federation and the Netherlands Enterprise Agency (RVO). The gathering is included in a special programme being organized as part of a Dutch delegation visiting the city for the 2023 London Tech Week.
During the evening you can interact with alumni startup founders from a diverse range of sectors like everything digital, fintech, edtech, HRtech, multiverse, crypto, AI, machine learning, and more! On the NL side, the present TUD/TUe/UT/WUR startups will include: Integer TechnologiesMithra-AiFlawless WorkflowCodeGlassLexiusPerciv.aiAPTA Tech & Sourcer
