About this event

For the next Startup Grind Amsterdam we're very happy to be hosting Kasper Brandi Petersen - serial entrepreneur and Founder of LABFRESH & The Cloakroom.

In our fireside chat Kasper will share his personal startup journey, his learnings, 'hacks' and failures.

Kasper will share his learnings on many aspects of his startups: from idea, to fundraising (having successfully raised from both VCs & crowdfunding), scaling a team, getting acquired, being a foreign founder in Amsterdam, and more.

In true Startup Grind style expect an open, honest and inspiring talk. In Kasper's own words: "My companies are not that big (yet), but my opinions are ;)"

Join us at the beautiful rent24 Magna Plaza for what proves to be another great Startup Grind Amsterdam edition.

Why do we charge for entry? 2 reasons: 1. for some drinks & snacks & 2. to make sure people show up. When we've had free tickets we find more than 50% who RSVP don't show up. It's still a great deal for a great speaker, drinks, snacks and networking!


Kasper Brandi Petersen is an Amsterdam-based serial entrepreneur, originally from Copenhagen. As founder of The Cloakroom, Kasper created an online styling service for men, which attracted great investors and scaled to a team of 50, before it was acquired in 2016. 

Since then Kasper has been using new technology to create stain and odour repellant shirts. From their hub in the Red Light District of Amsterdam, LABFRESH has utilised crowdfunding and social media very successfully, to establish themselves as the biggest producer of enhanced shirts in Europe.
