AMSTERDAM. While waiting for an elevator in a Amsterdam Zuidas office building, Brian Nafziger from tech start up Blorpo recognized NRV Ventures bigwig Mark Dijkman and introduced himself. They entered the lift and Nafziger made his elevator pitch in an actual elevator. Unfortunately his explanation ran out steam by the ninth floor after he explained his company’s used ‘state of the art A.I. from an incredible development partner.’

The remainder of the elevator ride continued in silence with as both watched the display numbers count up the floors.Dijkman then observed, ‘Uh, this is my floor.’ He then offered Nafziger a handshake who responded with an awkward fist bump.

There is an easier way. Amsterdam Capital Week. Too many investors. Not enough start ups (true story)
