UT/4TU Alumni Founders 2 Founders Networking Event, London

Are you a London-based founder of a startup? Then join us on Monday June 12th!

London Tech Week is the perfect time for hosting the first ever ‘founders meet founders’ networking event in London that will bring UK and Netherlands based alumni entrepreneurs together to celebrate local successes as well as stimulate useful contacts with each other. Opening the gathering is TU Delft alumnus and fintech entrepreneur Stijn Pieper (see bio below) who from the rooftop DJ station will talk about experiences as a founder in both Zurich and London, as well as wisdom he wish he could share with his younger entrepreneur self in the past.

  • About Stijn Pieper

    Stijn Pieper is a fintech entrepreneur and product executive. As the founder of Advanon, he successfully funded thousands of businesses with over €400 million, with offices in Zurich and Berlin. After exiting his business, he took on the role as product lead for Revolut, to build the first global financial superapp at Revolut Business, attracting over half a million business customers across 39 markets with £110 billion in transactions. As the product executive at Uncapped, he built another digital bank providing investments ranging from £10k to £4 million in tech companies across the UK, US, and Europe. With degrees from TU Delft, Stijn started his career in the Netherlands at ING, the Dutch National Bank, and Google. 

    Stijn's journey is marked by a relentless drive for fintech innovation and brings a wealth of knowledge and expertise to the table, making him a valuable resource for navigating the European start-up ecosystems.

This event takes place on Monday June 12th from 6:00 PM till 8:00 PM at the rooftop of Bar Elba Waterloo (walking distance from London Tech Week) and is being hosted by the alumni offices of the four technical universities of the Netherlands in collaboration with the 4TU.Federation and the Netherlands Enterprise Agency (RVO).
