How did TEDxBinnenhof | Ideas from Europe inspire your mission and/or event?
The Embassy of the Kingdom of the Netherlands in Bulgaria happily embraced the idea of TEDxBinnenhof to set up a viewing event with presentations by international speakers talking about Global challenges and sharing “Ideas worth doing”.
What will your event look like?
On 21 April we have invited innovative Bulgarian and Dutch entrepreneurs from different fields that would share with us their visions and perspectives on innovation and entrepreneurship being the new drivers for the European economy.
On 31 March in The Hague was held the 2016 edition of TEDxBinnenhof dedicated to European entrepreneurship which happened also within the framework of the Dutch EU presidency in 2016. The Netherlands EU presidency provides an excellent opportunity to further our mission and to promote The Netherlands and Bulgaria as innovative startup & entrepreneurial ecosystems.
Furthermore, one of the main goals of the Netherlands is to establish a thriving and competitive innovative entrepreneurship ecosystem. The Netherlands now ranks No1 on the Startup Nation ScoreBoard of the European Digital Forum.
Who will be invited to your event?
We expect that the event will be attended by start-ups and start-up incubators, funds and financing institutions, SME’s representatives and media. The event will close with a networking drink for all participants.
What do you hope to achieve by organising this event?
The Embassy of the Kingdom of the Netherlands has taken the initiative to host this event with the aim to connect people with entrepreneurial mind-set from both countries, startups, developers and investors with knowledge about specific themes which can inspire and bring about new partnerships.
