How do you organize for growth?

On Friday 3 November, we will organize an exclusive event about scaling up tech companies.

​We personally invited 75 people from the tech ecosystem including our GEC Capital portfolio founders, other cool founders, angel investors, VCs, and connectors in the ecosystem. Didn’t get an invitation yet? Founders and investors can still apply for our waiting list. We will curate based on diversity.

​Wendy van Ierschot, founder VIE People, angel investor and author of the book Scale-Ups & Downs will deliver keynote about growing pains for scale-up companies.

​In addition we will have some portfolio founders that will share insights about their scaling journey.

​After the drinks, we booked a nice little restaurant closeby that can accommodate us for a networking dinner.
