Ton van't Noordende
Ton is currently leading deeptech investor 01Ventures, with offices in Amstedam & London. With 01V he intends to invest in companies taking on big global problems with very bold ambition.
01V will be looking exclusively to invest in cutting-edge technologies in the following areas:
– data & machine intelligence
– enabling technologies
– human-computer interaction.
Ton previously was a partner at Keadyn VC – a seed stage VC from the Netherlands with 14 investments.
He is heavily involved in the European tech & startup ecosystem.
Recently he launched a foundation, e/d/t Global, built around a single premise. To facilitate the pioneers in emerging tech, who are fundamentally changing the way our world operates.
Next to that, he’s also the Investor in Residence at StartupDelta, working closely together with HRH Prince Constantijn, on a mission to break open the European investment scene.
In 2017 he travelled to over 40 cities, meeting with key influencers in the tech scene and trying to discover ‘the secret sauce’ & the ‘origin stories’ of those respective cities. Connecting founders, toptier VCs, superangels & community leaders.
In 2016 Ton founded Angel Island (angelisland.co) with the purpose of connecting the unconnected. They rented an island near Amsterdam in 2016 and in 2017, some tall ships and got together a curated group of 200 angel investors & 200 early stage founders and ‘locked’ the island. No pitching allowed, no keynotes, no name tags and a strict “zero asshole policy”.
Ton speaks frequently on events & startup conferences around the world. From moderating panels, to judging, to keynoting at a wide array of international conferences on topics like the State of Tech and VC in Europe, Emerging Tech (AI/ML), the secret behind successful fundraising and on what defines the different European Tech hubs & cities.
