The DFF is an opportunity to put your startup on the map – raise funds, meet investors, win growth resources by participating in the Pitch Competitions, showcase your product at the EXPO, build awareness by meeting media, learn from the industry’s best during workshops and just rock’n’roll at the DFF parties.

Investor Day!

Investor Day is designed exclusively for the deal making benefit of the startups and investors attending DFF.

During Investor Day we will focus on pitch competitions by 500 Startups and Rockstart, investor pitches, speed dating and networking. We know your time is valuable, so we aim to promote meaningful encounters by placing less emphasis on the DFF stage program.

Investor Day will take place the day before the DFF on Nov 29th.
