  • Eline Leijten | Plugify
    Winning TheNextWomen Pitch Competition has been highly beneficial for Plugify: next to the great PR we received through TheNextWomen Summit, the €20.000 convertible note proved to be a firm foundation for a very successful crowdfunding campaign. Not to forget it was a very fun day. Highly recommended!

    Winner Pitch Competition 2016
  • Bernadine Brocker | Vastari
    It was an honor and a huge opportunity to be shortlisted for TheNextWomen Pitch Competition at the Summit in 2015, and then a huge honor to win! Since the Pitch, our company has gotten an investment from TheNextWomen Crowdfund, but also from 4 other investors (men and women) who we met through the event. Having an organization that champions female entrepreneurs and female investors is a very welcome initiative and we’re proud to be an investee!

    Winner Pitch Competition 2015
  • Becoming a member of TNW has been one of the best decisions I made as an entrepreneur while taking my swimwear business BoxerinBlue to the next level. The membership has opened many doors to valuable advise from mentors and experts, and resulted in accelerated exposure and increased brand awareness.
  • Nahla El-Gizawy | Analogie
    Regularly attending the Startup Stories got me more exposed to like-minded professionals, and can safely say, it has become an event I rely on for getting my head in the game. Every time new topics and speakers are presented which helps in staying up to date with today's entrepreneurial world
    Nahla El-Gizawy - Analogie
  • The TNW Pitch opened a lot of doors for me. I’ve found an investor and the best mentor I could have wished for. Next to that, the TNW loan made it possible to participate in my first international fair. So TNW pitch helped me to professionalize and scale up my company.

    Winner Pitch Competition 2014
  • In 2014 I was looking for a venture (€5-€10M in annual revenue) which 1. needed operational/financial support and 2. gave the possibility to supply stock. Through TheNextWomen I got in touch with Inez van Oord, owner of LINQ. The company where both points were accomplished.
  • Growing and running a company on your own can be lonely and inefficient. Finding the complementary person next to me was not an easy task. Thanks to TheNextWomen, whom I met via one of the great events they organize, I was introduced to exactly the right woman. Pauline Rengers helped me to restructure the company and she became a very valuable shareholder.
  • EY helps women setup and expand businesses and through our partnership with TheNextWomen we are connected directly and very enthusiastically to a large network of female entrepreneurs.
    Karin Loohuis - EY

  • TheNextWomen has helped me with a network, with chances, knowledge, and experience to professionalize as a VC investor
