Find the right co-founder to build your startup!

NEXT EVENT: 24 April 2024

Meet Your Co-Founder XL is a live national matchmaking event to find a promising tech start-up to join or to find a co-founder that can strengthen your tech company.

The edition in April is for startups in Life Sciences & Health and takes place in Leiden.

During this day you will get the opportunity to either pitch your startup or present yourself to potentially find a talent match made in heaven. Our hosting partners, mostly tech incubators, indicated that it is a challenge for startup founders to build the right team and find the right talent.

For whom?

Are you a promising tech startup with a leadership vacancy? Or are you ready to strengthen an innovative startup with your superpowers? Ideally we introduce as many opportunities to you as possible.

Application process

First step is to register to participate. We will make a selection of companies and co-founders based on the criteria of motivation, supply & demand and criteria as indicated by the startup’s needs.
