i.s.m. The Hague Tech & World Startup Factory

Friends, neighbors, entrepreneurs, explorers, thinkers, improvers, music lovers and adventurers!

Do you know that feeling, that click, that connection sparked by a new encounter? That undefined feeling of something beautiful about to happen? Sudden ideas that begin to flow naturally?
In the movie ‘Casablanca’ Rick Blain uttered the historical line “I think this is the beginning of a beautiful friendship”. We believe that this forging power also counts for live-music, as it has an unescapable power to bring people together.

We therefore feel a need to bring together people, companies and innovative ideas, in order to contribute something positive tot the world around us. We do not particularly like network-drinks, but we do know that experiencing a concert brings people together. We regularly see how a good live show sparks new bounds or great ideas in the audience.

So let’s enjoy business and inspiration, matched with some rock ’n roll and a beer!

Let’s connect
With this in mind, we ask startups and innovators to sign up for selection to participate on November 20th in the third edition of NEW BEST FRIENDS, an informal business-matchmaking event at PAARD.
In New Best Friends we bring into contact a varied mix of local startups, established companies, investors and government parties. Our firm believe is that these connections work best accompanied by some rock ’n roll and a beer. After all, Music is part of the DNA of this city. Come and join us!

The Hague Tech, World Startup Factory and Paard collaborate  for the first time in this new initiative held at the venue that serves as a home to the celebrated Hague rock scene and pop lovers: Paard.
