On the 15th of September, Fashion Potluck hosted another edition of Founders Mesh. With a cool environment, great networking, and an even better pitching session, this event is shaping the tech-driven start-up ecosystem.
After an outstanding first edition, Founders Mesh was back for a second round and it continues to exceed expectations. Created by Fashion Potluck, this project transports the vibrant San Francisco start-up scene to the Amsterdam panorama in a truly immersive experience. More than just a networking event, this initiative creates a casual environment where founders and investors can share experiences, goals, and knowledge.
Along with the opportunity to connect in a laid-back setting, the curated and diverse crowd is definitely this event’s added value. In fact, one of the organization’s top goals is to ensure an inclusive and constructive environment where everyone feels welcomed. Is safe to say this purpose was reached again during this second edition where a diversified and interesting group gathered to talk much more than just business.
Speaking of the night’s high notes, the pitching sessions were, as predicted, a big crowd favorite. Time seemed to fly by while some of Amsterdam’s most promising companies presented their identity, idea, and business model. The guests had the opportunity to watch pitches from:
As in the first edition, Founders Mesh took place in Bar Jones. Once again, the trendy and relaxed ambiance of this speakeasy played a crucial part in the creation of a supportive, exhilarating and innovative experience. The guests lounged in the bar’s stylish atmosphere, lingering in good conversation with the company of a cocktail.
The evening could not end without a surprise. After congratulating the success of the event, AWS, one of the event’s sponsors, offered 1000€ in credit to each one of the attendees.
In addition to AWS, Founders Mesh counted, once again, with the irreplaceable support of Startup Amsterdam. Both sponsors took the time to explain their initiatives and how they could help the present start-ups upgrade to the next level.
Three times truly is a charm so stay tuned for a new edition of Founders Mesh very soon!
