TNW Conference is back for its 12th year. Reserve your 2-for-1 ticket voucher now.

But that’s not all. For the fourth year in a row, TNW and Adyen joined forces to organize the Tech5 competition in which we scour The Netherlands, the UK, Spain, France, Germany and Sweden for the fastest revenue-growing companies. We organize nominee dinners to announce the individual country winners.

In May, all winners will be invited to TNW Conference 2017 for the overall winner announcement on mainstage. Over the past three years, companies including Transferwise, Foodpanda,, Drivy, Cabify, and Fairphone made it into the Tech5.

For the first year, we’ve appointed country ambassadors to join the Tech5 team to promote the competition in their country. We would like you to meet them.
