At this year’s EU-Startups Summit on April 20-21 in Barcelona we will gather over 2,000 founders, startup enthusiasts and investors for two days of networking, inspiration and learning! At our annual flagship event we’ll have a buzzing exhibition hall, a dedicated networking app, a great networking area/party, 2 stages with exciting speakers, a big Pitch Competition, and much more!
Also, we’ll once again be hosting our popular ‘Investors on Stage’ Session, where 30 high-profile and carefully selected VCs will join us on the main stage to present their investment firm/focus with a 2-3 minute pitch each. It’s an occasion where we flip the switch, turn the tables, and put the investors in the hot seat for a change!
Most startup founders might agree: pitching to investors can be a daunting task. But before even reaching out to investors it’s important to do your homework and to find out which VC firms are actually a fit for your company in terms of industry focus, business stage focus or even geographical focus.
Checking out our Investors on Stage session, but also active networking with our 350+ investors at the EU-Startpus Summit, will help you as founder to meet and connect with VCs, business angels and accelerators that might be just the right fit for your startup.
Long Story Short: We’re now inviting Europe’s top investors to apply and eventually to join us on the main stage to pitch their VC firm and investment focus to our large audience of startup founders.
With hundreds of Europe’s top startups listening, this will be a great opportunity to get the word out about your VC firm to a primed and investment-ready audience of entrepreneurs. If you’d like to take part, we encourage you to fill out this form until February 28!
