20 of our favorite startups from TNW Europe


TNW Europe 2016 was not only a festival-like conference full of great talks, epic parties and irresistible catering – it was also the opportunity for 200 of the hottest international startups to present 9,400 tech influencers, investors and journalists the next game-changers.

Every year, we hold hundreds of interviews with startups in order to shortlist the cream of the crop and invite them to Boost at TNW.
