Venture Café Rotterdam is a non-profit organization that supports the innovation ecosystem of Rotterdam and surroundings. We believe that innovation is for everyone and therefore our Thursday Gathering networking events should be freely accessible to all. In order to keep our Thursday Gatherings free, we need your support!
One of the ways in which you can help us in achieving this is by sponsoring a beer keg that’s on draft during a Thursday Gathering.


We offer two choices of beer every Thursday and now you get to donate one:
  • Pilsner (standard) beer keg (80 EUR);
  • Special beer keg (100 EUR, only served if one is sponsored by you!);
In return, we will make your sponsorship known to our visitors by making your name and organization’s name visible in the Venture Café area during the Thursday Gathering and we’ll mention you in our weekly newsletter. We will also keep track of our Top 5 beer keg donators, and ensure they remain visible in Venture Café every week!
If you are willing to participate in the Bar Keg Sponsorship program, please, fill in this form. And our team will immediately contact you!
We appreciate your support! Together we will ensure our Thursday Gatherings remain freely accessible to all!

Thursday Gathering
The Thursday Gathering is Venture Café’s signature program, drawing hundreds of entrepreneurs and innovators each week both in person and online. Through the Thursday Gathering sponsorship opportunities below, you’ll connect with passionate, creative innovators while amping up your brand awareness and trust.
Session Series
Short session. Big impact. For one hour during the Thursday Gathering, you’ll work with innovators in a one-on-one setting. Host an open-house ask-me-anything session, or share your expertise around specific topics. It’s up to you!
Theme Night
Many of our Thursday Gatherings are organized around a theme -- anything from trending business practices to cosmic exploration to creative activism. You’ll set the theme, develop several topical sessions, and will share space with other partners. 
Takeover Night
Oh, you want to go big? Really big? We’ve got you covered. During Takeover Night, the entire Thursday Gathering is exclusively yours. We’ll work together to build every session, panel discussion, demonstration table, interactive element and memorable moment around your brand and interests. This is the experience that guests will talk about long after the event ends!
