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.
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.
It is presented to all of our members and each of them
expresses their interest in providing financial or personal support.
Your project is then in Deal Flow!
Even when a project is not selected, we give feedback to the entrepreneur and guide them to someone more appropriate to their needs.
