What we do

We believe entrepreneurs can change the world if they attend the right event, at the right time.

Startup Sesame was created in June 2015 when six of the most coveted Tech events in Europe became founding partners of what is now the first european event acceleration program for startups. We select the most promising companies and match them with conferences and mentors. Our community of event lovers help them expand their network and break national barriers through connections and collaboration.

There is no science of Tech events yet. But we’re working on it.


Startups with existing revenues and appropriately staffed, looking for international growth or fundraising.


Free passes, free or discounted booth, direct access to startup competitions & speaking opportunities.


Access to a pool of international mentors, valuable feedback on your product & event coaching.


Exposure on social media and press coverage with our partner events.

It’s all very simple, but also extremely valuable in my opinion, as (especially first-time) entrepreneurs don’t always know which event will provide the best bangs for their (limited) bucks. Robin Wauters


Startup Sesame has given us the amazing ability to unlock some of the best networking opportunities in Europe to help Zettabox grow. Without it, we wouldn’t have been able to attend these amazing conferences and meet such influential people. Alexander Guy

Head of Growth, Zettabox
