WHY CALL THE SAB ?

Do you have an innovative project and are you highly motivated? Are you looking for funding and support? Here’s what you need to do :

I SUBMIT YOUR PROJECT VIA OUR DEDICATED PLATFORM

GUST is an international platform matching Business Angels and Entrepreneurs

If your project is still maturing or your business is very new, you will be invited to participate in the Start Up Factory to briefly present your project to an audience of investors, coaches and other project leaders.

The questions raised after your pitch will help you perfect your project. You will also have the opportunity to network and increase your circle of advisors.

The Startup Factory is conducted in French and runs each Quarter for one evening.

If your project is more mature and you’re comfortable pitching but now wish to become “investment ready”, then you will be invited to participate in the Venture Academy.

 

You will attend a workshop, pitch your company twice and receive personalised coaching. This gives you an opportunity to find a sponsor and investors. The networking opportunities are fantastic.

The Venture Academy is conducted in English and runs twice a year in the Spring and the Autumn. It starts Thursday afternoon and ends with a lunch on the Saturday.
