Enter the GrowBoat

The GrowBoat aims to be the most exclusive networking event in the app industry, connecting founders, CEOs, CMOs and executives around the globe.

Selected crew members will sail three hours on a catamaran and enjoy the beauty of the sea while building their network with other executives. As we aim to make this a relaxed event series and we all hate to shy away from sales pitches we have limited the event to a maximum of two people from our sponsors.

Want to become part of our crew? Apply by signing up for our newsletter and reply to our welcome message with some simple answers about yourself. This is the only way to get on our list of potential crew members.

Three hours of sailing & networking will give you direct access to decision makers from the app industry. We limit our sponsorship opportunities to a maximum of 2 sponsors only, with a maximum of 1 person each. If you want to become the exclusive sponsor for a trip please get in touch and we can discuss the options.

As a sponsor you have the opportunity to get personal introductions to our crew which is limited to be Founders, CEOs, CMOs or similar executive levels only.

Before we set sail you have the option to speak for up to 10 minutes about your company & product, and you are encouraged to suggest a topic that the crew members might want to discuss during the trip.

As we want to be as ecological as possible we do not allow flyers or any other merchandise apart from branded towels, suntan lotion or any other helpful things that will make our trip better.

The event is exclusive but it is far from posh. We want our crew members to enjoy the trip, they might even get wet or want to jump into the sea for a swim. So bring your bathing suite and have fun with our crew members!
