About the Tech Xperience

Why are we reaching out to you?

Our regional economy is growing rapidly as our innovations and solutions for societal challenges are highly in demand. The unique ecosystem between companies, knowledge institutes and government in this region is unique in the world. This is the main reason why ideas become reality in an unprecedented pace here. To remain disruptive, we’re always on the lookout for extraordinary talents in tech and IT, like yourself.

By organizing Tech Xperience 2020 we want to show you this is where the magic happens! Get to know this top technology region.

What is the Tech Xperience?

It’s an amazing opportunity for a select number of top-notch tech talents to discover what this region has to offer first-hand. We only have 20 tickets available, so we start off with a challenging case competition to find the most promising professionals.

When will the Tech Xperience take place?

Winners of the case competition will be invited to visit us from 9-14th of June 2020, during the Dutch Technology Week. A week in which we promise to blow your mind and change your life for good!

Which of the participating companies will I be visiting if I win?

During the Tech Xperience you will visit several of the participating companies. We can’t tell you which ones yet, but you will certainly visit the company of the challenge you won. On top of that, you will visit at least three other companies and join a number of different activities.
