Noah Conference: 10 years on stage!

Noah celebrates 10 years since its launch. In 2009, Marco Rodzynek, CEO and founder of NOAH wanted to create something new and make a positive contribution to strengthening the European digital economy. He wanted to create a platform, which didn’t exist at that time, where companies could introduce themselves to many potential investors at once. Today NOAH has over 500 investors at each of the three conferences in Tel Aviv, Berlin and London.

Noah organizes 3 conferences at 3 different locations, Tel Aviv, Berlin and London.  In Tel Aviv, NOAH is connecting Israeli startups with established companies and investors in order to promote Israeli-European relationships and enable funding. Berlin is focused on providing a platform for traditional corporates and their challengers in order to bring together ambitious executives and investors driven by the digital revolution.

In London the mission is to connect entrepreneurs and venture capital and to provide a physical marketplace that facilitates funding of digital European companies at all stages. Last year, Carlota Pi Founder of Catalan startup Holaluz, pitched to the Noah audience and yesterday she pitched again on the main stage, this time with other Catalan startups including Glovo, Novicap, and this year’s new group of 10: Stayforlong, Snappy Research, Signaturit, Photoslurp, Housfy, Watchity, Verse, SoccerDream, Film valley Sl (Filmarkethub) and Vilynx.

One big challenge for this edition is access to capital, especially for early stage companies. Something else that has to be successfully addressed is how to attract tech and marketing talent when the big platforms are working hard to recruit the best people.

In 2009 our plans were ambitious but we did not expect this when we started. At the conference in London, there are lots of international VCs and we also have the support of tech companies because we have been focusing on innovation and digitization from the very beginning. We also invite startups to be part of the ecosystem. Get out, network and take learnings back home!! – Marco Rodzynek CEO and Founder of Noah Conference
