Venture Café Rotterdam

Connecting innovators to make things happen.

About us


Venture Café is the place in Rotterdam where startups, corporates, talent, government and investors are connected to stimulate innovation and growth. Every Thursday between 17:00-20:00 at our central location at Groot Handelsgebouw in Rotterdam we host the largest innovation community gathering in The Netherlands (more than 300+ visitors every week). Here we offer freely accessible programs and an environment for "serendipitous encounters" to happen. The themes are determined by analyzing innovation agendas (from global to local level) to ensure our programs are relevant and contribute to reaching overarching economic and sustainability goals. Find our year program with themes here and check out the upcoming Thursday Gathering programs >

Venture Café Rotterdam is part of a global network with locations in the U.S.A., Asia, Oceania and Europe. Find all our locations here >
