Tijdens de 6e editie van The Next Web conference, die van 27 tot en met 29 april weer plaatsvindt in Amsterdam staan acht startups van Nederlandse bodem in de finale van de TNW Startup Rally. Uit meer dan 200 inschrijvingen zijn er na drie jury ronden 18 startups gekozen om op de internationale conferentie (1200 bezoekers verwacht) nieuwe diensten te presenteren.

“Startups hebben vaak twee grote uitdagingen. De eerste is financiering ophalen en de tweede is media aandacht” zegt mede oprichter van The Next Web, Patrick de Laive. “Het platform van The Next Web Startup Rally biedt de jonge bedrijven een mogelijkheid om voor een wereldwijd publiek, pers en investeerders te presenteren en kan grote invloed hebben op het succes van de startups”

Dit jaar wordt de startup rally gesteund door Microsoft BizSpark. wat de exposure voor de startups nog groter maakt. Vele nationale en internationale startups lanceerden hun diensten op The Next Web in eerdere edities, waaronder Netvibes, Zyb, Plazes, Wakoopa, Mendeley, Huddle, CoTweet, Yunoo en My Name is E.
