Startup Tuesday The Hague – The Humanity Hub Edition
17 November, 2020 @ 5:00 pm – 5:45 pm
Technology, innovation and humanitarian action. We are putting a spotlight on three entrepreneurs from the Humanity Hub community at this next edition of Startup Tuesday The Hague!
Start-up Tuesday is a re-occuring event to inspire and connect with like-minded people in and around The Hague. This series of events is a collaboration among innovative hubs that aim to strengthen connections and support impact-driven entrepreneurship in The Hague. It’s the ideal occasion to network, learn from experienced founders, and explore solutions to shared challenges!
As the Hague Humanity Hub, our goal in this series of events is to showcase successful start-ups in the peace, justice and humanitarian ecosystems, and to spread more entrepreneurial thinking among non-profits and other organizations in these sectors.

What to expect:
Start-up Tuesday will start with 10min pitches from each respective entrepreneur about their organisation and journey into entrepreneurship. These entrepreneurs will subsequently be brought together in a debate-like format. These will be live streamed to the general public and following this, a Q&A session will be held virtually. The event should therefore last up to an hour and a half. Speakers are invited to join our hybrid stage setup at the Humanity Hub to speak to the virtual audience.
