Startup Banking Events

A series of exclusive small scale events where we introduce great local founders to international VC's

Amsterdam - Series A
Amsterdam Lisbon Paris Berlin

We help startups grow from wherever they are now to a successful series A.
For our events, we select startups at a similar stage, all with great metrics, and we invite international investors who are interested in startups at that stage. Supported by Amsterdam Venture Partners, founders follow a preparation programme get ready for the event. By curating both startups and VC’s we create a very relevant event for all participants.

Our aim is to connect local startups to Europe’s leading VC’s. Our first two Seed Stage events in Amsterdam and Lisbon were a great success. From the event in Amsterdam, 35% of the attending founders have raised funding, with plenty more in the pipeline. We are confident the Lisbon event (last October) and our future events, will do at least as well. 

This is what participants of previous Startup Banking Events said:

Good Event. It was fun – well done! And most importantly: an amazing group of entrepreneurs and great startups! Congratulations – Markus Grundmann – Senovo
To be honest I had not expected to leave this event with four ventures that we consider very interesting – Wouter Volckaert – FOM
A cracking event, smoothly run and lots of fun. I was impressed with the quality of the startups, and their level of preparation. I look forward to following up with several of the founders I met in Lisbon. Time well spent! Ross Strachan – Adara Ventures.

AvP makes my job easier. The quality of startups that they had filtered down for me was highly attractive, we continue conversations with more than half of them. I look forward to the next event. Jan Borgstädt – JOIN Capital

I loved the format, the Q&A sessions with VC’s, the entrepreneurs, and above all, the awesome vibes and hospitality of the team that put this together’ Sebastián Fernández Medrano – Samaipata

A great example how a small event can be a great one. You have the focus, you have the time, you have full attention to your startup. The AvP team really helps you focusing on goals and the VCs give you a real vision of what they are expecting. All entrepreneurs should have this kind of help! Rui Cruz – Beevo
