Venture Café Rotterdam Thursday Gathering: Life Sciences, Health & Wellbeing

The registration deadline has expired.

Our flagship event is our Thursday Gathering, a weekly meetup that we organize 48 times per year. Every Thursday between 17.00 & 20.00 we host the largest innovation community gathering in the Netherlands, with more than 300 visitors per week. By offering free programming with Break-out sessions, Office hours and Info tables, we create serendipitous encounters. 

The focus is on making connections, building relationships & sharing knowledge. The impact happens in the crossover connections: attracting visitors from different industries to meet each other and inspire them to create new ideas.

We believe that innovation happens anywhere. That’s why our Thursday Gatherings and all of our programming is freely accessible for all who are interested.

Our own Holland Career Ambassador Alejandro Rodriguez will do a break-out session from 18:30-19:30 on "Working in the Netherlands? Explaining the why and how - Nuffic: Holland Career Ambassadors"
