Refunds

To guarantee high-quality matchmaking we screen every ticket holder. This event is specifically for people who are seriously exploring starting or running a technology company together in a team.

We do not accept recruiters, agencies, consultants, brokers and similar profiles to join. In case of doubt, you will be contacted for a check.

If your profile is not a fit your attendance will be cancelled and the ticket fee will be refunded.

Please note we do our best to match you with your ideal partner, but can not guarantee that you will find the exact profile you are looking for. We will check the participant list and contact you if we clearly see there is no fit. If your profile is not a fit, your attendance will be cancelled and the ticket fee will be refunded. So please state clearly what you are looking for in the registration.

If you cancel your attendance at least a week before the event you get a full refund. The ticket management fee by Eventbrite is non-refundable.

How the online event works


		Startup Matchmaking; IT, tech and business entrepr image

    A few days before the event, you get an invitation via email to fill in your networking profile where you share who you would like to meet (requests) and the expertise you can share (offers).

  • A day or two before the event there will be another email inviting you to browse the requests and offers and send meeting requests. Please mind that you have a limited amount of time slots so research the participants thoroughly beforehand. Consider the limitation when you send and accept requests.
  • When an invitation to meet is accepted, Conversation Starter finds the ideal time slot to meet.
  • During the event, Conversation Starter provides built-in 12-minute video calls through their intuitive platform. There will be a short break between each call. You will have access to the participants and their contact details through the web app after the event. You can also take notes and save them by your connection profile in Conversation Starter.
