Ton van ‘t Noordende
Ton van ’t Noordende is partner at Keadyn, a disruptive new venture investment firm from the Netherlands.
He is heavily involved in the Dutch startup ecosystem and is looking for ways to support entrepreneurship in a bigger way than just doing investments. That’s the reason he voluntarily joined the investor team of StartupFest, led by Prince Constantijn van Oranje & Jim Stolze, on their mission to create a nation-wide startup festival with the ambition to attract only the very best VCs to the Netherlands during 4 days in May 2016.
Ton has been at both sides of the table, having founded and sold adtech startup and influencer marketing platform called spreadthebrand.com early 2014. He has worked for leading global brands like Samsung, Sony Mobile, Saatchi & Saatchi | Leo Burnett and has created brand campaigns for and with top media agencies like GroupM, Mindshare, MEC Global, Starcom.
He is intrinsically motivated to help as many entrepreneurs as possible, that’s why this year he initiated Angel Island: an unconference that is set up to connect 200 business angels with 200 startup founders on an island near Amsterdam (Pampus Island).
Ton’s speaking topics are all related to venture capital and startups and include:
* Demystifying Venture Capital
* What to look for in investors / startups? (both perspectives)
* Startup ecosystems
* How to attract funding (as a startup) / how to setup corporate venturing
* How to pitch
He also gives masterclasses, Investor Insights, for both startups and corporates, and he is an experienced moderator.
Ton moderates a panel, and selects the panel members himself, for example an experienced startup, an angel investor and a professional investor, resulting in a combination of interesting insights and great stories on startups and investors.

Testimonial for Ton van ‘t Noordende:
We have the pleasure of working with Ton on a frequent basis. Ton moderated several panel discussions on stage at our conference, Capital On Stage. He is well connected in the startup and investor scene in Europe and knows many key players. He truly makes the most of his network by making meaningful introductions.
As a speaker, Ton is very genuine and combines a serious and insightful way of moderating with a nice touch of personal flair and humour.
