We’re proud to share with you our 2021 Impact Report.
Never one to shy away from challenges, Venture Café Rotterdam continued to engage with and connect our innovation community. Overall, we hosted a total of 49 Thursday Gatherings, all of which had an online component, helping to keep people informed and feel connected despite the challenges of COVID-19.
In total, Venture Café Rotterdam held 315 sessions and worked with 157 program partners to attract more than 3,000 visitors to our space, both physically and virtually during our weekly Thursday Gatherings. As a proud signatory of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals, our programming throughout the year reflected these ambitious but necessary targets.
In addition to the regular Thursday Gathering programming, 2021 saw us kick off a new monthly event series: Investment Café, aimed at structurally helping our community to navigate the investment ecosystem. With this series we were able to cover topics like investment possibilities, access to investors, brokers, the stock market, cryptocurrencies, and more.
“Innovation is the ability to see change as an opportunity. Through experimentation, we created an organic program that truly reflects the needs of the community within our capabilities and constraints. Join us in this journey as we continue experimenting and reinventing ourselves.”
