NEXT Update #71 - Fixing SoundCloud
By NEXT Amsterdam • Issue #71
Last weekend we skipped an edition because we were traveling in Austria. We visited the Business Angel Summit in Kitzbühel and met up with a new potential AI startup investment from Linz. We also formally announced our partnership with the European Super Angel Club and the Business Angel Institute. Together we believe we can improve the European angel ecosystem by bringing angels together for larger investments and help them with an education program for early stage investing. We will write a bit more about this on our blog this week.
And next to all these steps forward we were also named 5th best accelerator from Europe in Venionaire’s yearly Top 20 European Accelerators research. Wohoo! 😎 
PS: We have office space available just at the edge of Amsterdam’s city center in one of the most beautiful startup offices in Amsterdam (according to us 😉). Work together with other interesting startups like Cocoon and Peermatch. Our entrepreneurs in residence and in-house developers are always willing to help and many of our startups organize Meetups at our location. Get in touch for a trial!
