When and where is it on?
30 and 31 October 2018, Old Billingsgate, London.
How many years has it been going?
NOAH Conference was launched in 2009 in London, so this year we celebrate the 10th
anniversary of the event in London.
What was the inspiration to start it?
Before NOAH launched its conference, there was not a single platform, where young companies
and founders could introduce themselves efficiently to several investors at the same time. Marco
Rodzynek and Jan Brandes, the founders of NOAH, wanted to change. But the aim clearly was to
offer value to both sides, not just to the startups. As a result, right from the start, the focus has
been on a high level of quality regarding the choice of content and presentations as well as the
selection of speakers.
What exciting things can people look forward to?
There will be about 1,800 attendees, the “who is who” of European Internet, and more than 100 of
Europe’s leading digital businesses. Venture capitalists and ambitious young entrepreneurs will
find an exclusive platform and share their current success stories. NOAH also offers a totally
revamped conference app and networking / matchmaking technology plus theme-related meeting
areas to make relevant new contacts. The Conference brings people together and offers exciting
contacts that would probably not be possible otherwise. Participants leave the NOAH conference
with a wealth of innovative experiences and valuable new contacts.
What opportunities are on offer for those attending?
At NOAH London, internet CEOs, executives and investors gain insights into the latest concepts
and market trends. It’s the place to network, engage, and develop long lasting business
relationships, while also enjoying NOAH social gatherings. Known for focusing on proven and
scalable business models that are driven by measurable results, the event also facilitates
interaction with global speakers, making the full experience inspiring and enjoyable for everyone.
NOAH London is focusing on providing a sophisticated platform for the leading entrepreneurs and
investors, to connect them with a vision of driving the European digital economy. In addition, there
will be a startup stage, which will be the best possible platform for up-and-coming young
companies to present themselves to a wider audience and to investors. Approximately 80 pre-
selected startups will be given the opportunity to present themselves in the best light and to shape

What tips would you give to people attending to get the most out of it?
First, come to the NOAH conference. Once you are there, take the initiative and do not just wait for
things to happen on their own. Also be open for new input and do not set your focus too narrowly.
Of course, most people come to meet investors – but it is just as important to be able to exchange
with successful founders and to meet high-quality service providers. You can use our pre-event
matchmaking app to easily set up meetings.
