Investment Café



If you‚Äôre an entrepreneur, startup, scaleup or simply curious about investing your savings then Investment Café is the event for you. This new monthly event aims to demystify the world of investment and capital funding by navigating you through this exciting yet complex topic.

Building on our previous initiatives, including Rotterdam Capital Days, Venture Café Rotterdam along with our program partners Yes!Funded, Up!Rotterdam and De Investeersderclub, will launch on 20 May a new, recurring concept. This means that every third Thursday of each month, we‚Äôll focus our Thursday Gathering on everything related to funding.

Investment Caf鬆will help you:

  • Understand investors/investment climate (What‚Äôs out there?)
  • Discover investment possibilities, shapes & forms (What suits my business?)
  • Gain access to investors (Does the investor suit me?
  • Meet service providers / brokers who can help navigate (Who can help me get funded?

Furthermore, if you‚Äôre more interested in making your money work harder for you, Investment Café can also help by diving deep into subjects such as:

  • Stock Market
  • Cryptocurrencies and
  • Real estate

Why should you attend Investment Café?

We've done this before! Venture Café Rotterdam are experts at connecting innovators to make things happen. In 2019, we organised the hugely successful Rotterdam Capital Days that saw 1800+ participants and connected talent, ideas and money through events such as Informal InvestorDiner.

Investment Café will continue the momentum and capture the spirit of Rotterdam Capital Days on a monthly basis to give you the confidence in making the right choices for your business and your savings.
