Coming events of KPN New Business

KPN's startup events in December


9 December
there will be a go see on the Beijerlandselaan with some of our Voor Goed members, in order to see how several teams are working against poverty and crime in that area. By having a selective shop admittance, regulate housing from the municipality site as well as creating a vibrant art scene there, they hope to change the atmosphere of this area in a vibrant Rotterdam worthy style.

11 December we host the 15thedition of our Startup evening! Speed dates between Startups and numerous corporates, investors and KPN employees will take place. On top of that there will be a panel discussion on the topic of diversity and inclusion within tech. We’ve got a great line-up with Diane Janknegt – Founder Wizenoze, Hester Noorman – Airbridge Equity Partners, Constantijn van Oranje – Special Envoy TechLeap.NL and Jan Kees de Jager – CFO KPN. For KPN’s CFO, Jan Kees de Jager, it will be his last Startup evening. We want to thank him for all his efforts in KPN’s Startup scene and will make sure to make the last one count.

16 December there will be a KPN Smart Mobility Demo outside of our Rotterdam office, the Link. Several Smart Mobility Startups will live demonstrate and explain how to use their product or service, in front Rotterdam’s renowned skyline! Though the event is mainly targeted at KPN employees, other citizens are welcome too.

18 December we will be joining a closed lunch and presentation at Gezelschap 010, a community of 50 professionals in Rotterdam who meet on a biweekly basis. Always fun to talk business with city-like people.

19 December our quarterly innovation exchange with Austrian telecom provider A1 will take place. In these sessions we share knowledge and experiences regarding innovation and working with Startups. Love to work together, bundle our forces and grow the ecosystem!

We hope to see you at one of our events. If you have any questions, please send an email to kpnnewbusiness@kpn.com.

We love Innovation, We love Startups!
