A network for collaboration

KPMG Event

KPMG is one of TQ’s four founding partners.

Since August 2016, KPMG and TQ have been working closely to help startups grow. With over 100 years experience and a global corporate network, KPMG is the perfect connector for almost any startup.

100 years of experience

KPMG is a global network of professional services firms providing audit, tax, and advisory services. They operate in 154 countries and territories and have 200,000 people working in member firms around the world.  


One of the formats that KPMG and TQ organize is Traction: a matchmaking event between four startups and corporate partners. Four thirty-minute meetings back-to-back help selected startups solve their various growth challenges.

The right theme

We regularly tap into the network of KPMG to help startups bring their new products and services to potential clients. Focused around six themes from Healthy Societies to Smart Financials, we host matchmaking events, connect sessions, and public facing events for the wider community.

Ethical data

Sander Klous is the Managing Director of Big Data Analytics at KPMG in the Netherlands who's responsible for the global advanced analytics technology stack of KPMG. He shared his vision about data and ethical algorithms for the TQ community and laid out a blueprint on how startups should think about data.
