The Dragon's Den - matching innovators and entrepreneurs with investors
If you have a great business idea and are in need of capital or knowledge to bring it to the next level, present your pitch to our jury. The jury consists of, among others, venture capitalists ready to invest and experts in a wide range of fields who are experienced mentors that can help guide you in the realization of your idea. Aside from the possibility of receiving an investment from our Dragons, the best-presented idea(s) will be offered an additional prize that will help you develop your business. The deadline for applications specific to the Dragons' Den has been extended to 8 am Monday morning, 10 September.
How to apply: Click on the "registration button" below and select the link to the Dragons' Den registration form within the main event registration form. Please note that if you are interested in applying for the Dragons' Den, you must submit two registration forms: one for the talent event itself and one for the Dragons' Den. Failure to do so will make it impossible to select you as a candidate.
As part of the normal selection process, we may approach entrepreneurs or they may apply directly; all applications will be processed in the same way. To be considered, candidates need to submit the online application form and will be subject to the same casting criteria. Unfortunately, due to the high number of applicants expected, only those individuals who are shortlisted will be contacted. Please rest assured that we will consider all applications carefully. Once shortlisted for consideration, applicants will be given due diligence, but ultimately the final selection for participation will be decided by a number of different factors; the International Talent Community’s (ITC) decision is final.
Our goal is to stimulate and support the internationalization of the Utrecht Region. We focus on all aspects that will help internationals feel more at home in our region. Don't miss anything on upcoming events and more by signing up for the ITC newsletter here!
