At TIME:ANGELS, all of our events are people-meeting-people events.
Effectively, it means that we strive to have as few titles, business cards, PowerPoints and pitches as possible. We seek to give time, not take it. Thus, we aim to never waste anyone’s time with non-value adding activities and design our events accordingly.
We want to enable conversations that would otherwise not be taking place.
We do that by designing each event to have as much diversity in gender, nationalities, age, professions, education, ethnicity, culture and experience, as we can possibly attract.
The Time:Turner is an evening of small meetings. Each meeting follows the same structure:
- First, the startup introduces their business, current challenges and aspirations. Listen and use your notebook for the questions that might come up, as they are talking.
- Then you are invited to ask questions to make sure you have understood the challenges they are facing and what kind of help they need.
After the event, we send your time investment offers to the startups, who will invite you for coffee and cookies to further discuss your proposal.
Whether or not you end up investing, or how much time you invest, is up to you.
If you are curious to find out more about becoming a Time Angel, we invite you to join the Time:Turner. Here we introduce you to our community, teach you to listen to understand, and connect entrepreneurs and Time Angels. It is an evening of networking, sparring, inspiration and new connections.
