Sign up for the travel tomorrow meetup - start-ups pitch & grow

Do you have a good idea for the travel industry and are you still looking for an investor or business partner? Sign up before January 1, and be in with a chance to pitch your plan on the Vakantiebeurs Trade Day for investors from the travel world.

The ANVR, Vakantiebeurs and Emerce, all with extensive networks in the travel industry, are joining forces to offer start-ups the opportunity to present themselves to the travel world.
During the Vakantiebeurs Trade Day, 5 travel start-ups are given an opportunity to convince 3 “Dragons’ Den”-like investors and an audience of approximately 100 industry experts of the viability of their idea. Each start-up gets 3 minutes to pitch their idea, followed by 5 minutes of questions. If the ideas are really good, one or more members of the jury may decide to invest money, knowledge or their network in one (or more) start-ups.

What can you win?
Each idea can win an investment in cash or know-how by one of the 3 big Dragons from the jury. In addition, there will be more than 100 professionals in the audience. Maybe, there will be some 'secret' investors too…

In addition to a jury prize, 1 of the 5 start-ups will win the public award. The idea attracting the most votes wins a stand at the Vakantiebeurs, an interview in ANVR View and media exposure through Emerce! Talking about a flying start!

What should you do?
Do you have a great idea for entrepreneurs in the travel industry or for travellers? Are you looking for an investor or business partner? Do you want to pitch your idea on 9 January 2018 between 12 and 3 PM in Utrecht? Submit your business plan before January 1, by mailing it to The idea may be still in its infancy and cannot be older than 1.5 years.
In the first week of January, we will make a selection from all the entries and give 5 starting entrepreneurs the opportunity to give a 3-minute presentation on 9 January 2018, during the Vakantiebeurs Trade Day, in the Jaarbeurs in Utrecht, between 12 and 3 PM. The idea remains the property of the start-up. 
We look forward to receiving your idea as soon as possible!
