Events Bureau

The Events Bureau is dedicated to supporting innovation through connection. We are the living room of Rotterdam’s venture community: a place where people can host their event, exchange knowledge, build meaningful relationships, and make their ideas happen.


We are fostering a strong, supportive, and accessible innovation community in Rotterdam. We build, strengthen, and connect individuals and communities of innovators while expanding access to resources, programming, and networks.


We believe that innovation is for everyone and that anyone with an idea is an innovator. Innovation is present everywhere: in entrepreneurship, but also in the social sector + public service, in the creative economy, within larger corporations, and in the very fabric of human interaction.


The Venture Cafe Foundation is a non-profit organization and part of the Venture Cafe Global Institute and the Cambridge Innovation Center (CIC). We are located on the 4th floor of the iconic Groot Handelsgebouw in Rotterdam. 

We build and support the innovation community in order to accelerate innovation and to foster growth. By offering freely accessible programs we create a platform where students, startups, entrepreneurs, corporates, investors, government and other organizations can meet each other by ‘serendipitous encounters’ and create impact. Every Thursday (between 17.00-20.00) we host the largest innovation community gathering in The Netherlands (more than 300+ visitors every week). See our program here!

Therefore 100% of our profit is donated to Venture Café’s mission.
