The Family: Founders meetup

The European entrepreneurial ecosystem can be unhealthy as it is not viewed as a single unit. It's only seen as just the sum of its parts. In most cases, it’s even less than the sum as European cities tend to compete with our another instead of finding ways to work together. The Family are committed to tackling this issue by finding ways to unify the European ecosystem. 

The Family leverages the best of those cities and brings it together. Picture it as the best people, investors, perks and know-how of each city, on-demand. By going on tour, The Family is aiming to connect startups, founders, and angels and to meet with local entrepreneurs. On the Amsterdam stop of their tour you will be able to learn how to get access to the best of the European tech ecosystem.

The Family began five years ago, in Paris; having identified a lack of ambition in the Paris tech industry, The Family began a youtube channel, where they posted hour-long videos aimed at addressing mind set in the tech world. Attracting millions of viewers, The Family realized that if startups and their teams were hungry and driven enough, they could make it anywhere. After nurturing more than 600 startups and helping them raise more than 500 million in VCs, The Family decided to expand to the rest of Europe. This decision brought them to London and Berlin, where they began working on a single platform, meant to connect the main entrepreneurial European cities. In this way, they hope to create a diverse, dynamic, and open startup culture.
