Come support and celebrate Dutch entrepreneurial talent

On Wednesday October 17, the DutchTechSF community, and our friends and supporters, will gather for an invitation-only VIP reception and seated dinner at Dogpatch WineWorks, a 20,000 square foot industrial-style urban winery located in the historic Dogpatch neighborhood of San Francisco, California. |

The Dutch continue to have tremendous success in their entrepreneurial pursuits, and are at the forefront of technological innovation in Silicon Valley and beyond. Now is the time to come together and celebrate our achievements.

Stories Behind The Fog

Stories Behind The Fog

Stories Behind The Fog (SBTF) originated in San Francisco, CA, where we are documenting and collecting the stories of one hundred people who have experienced or been affected by homelessness in the Bay Area.


With our unique connection to all layers of government, corporations and the main innovation hubs, we aim to merge the Dutch startup ecosystem into one single connected hub. We break down barriers and improve access to talent, capital, networks, knowledge and markets.

The Venue

Dogpatch WineWorks is an industrial-style urban winery operating out of the American Industrial Center in the heart of San Francisco's historic Dogpatch neighborhood. When it was first built the AIC was one of San Francisco's largest structures and was described as a "sky scraper on it's side." It was originally occupied by the American Can Company which fulfilled contracts for the U.S. military for decades.



Much thanks to our Partners for their generous support, and Philip Bredt, Taco Carlier, Casper de Clercq, Bastiaan de Goei, Maarten Hooft, Kevin van ‘t Klooster, Floris Kruijssen, Diede van Lamoen, Jim Long, Ruben Meiland, Richard Pieters, Arjanna van der Plas, Diederik Scheepstra, Robert Vis and many others who helped make this possibility into a reality.
