Are you a start-up company? Then the word “Venture Capital” has certainly reached your interest and you are about to read this very interesting article prepared by the INPHO Venture Summit team…to prepare upcoming meetings with VCs at INPHO Venture Summit.
But if you are a large corporation, then take a few minutes since VCs are obviously part of your Open Innovation process. VCs are strong partners to collaborate with to operate your innovation strategy in investing in breakthrough innovation that will ensure your leadership in an economy under mutation.
Whether your company has a corporate investment team or not, good discussions and collaborations with Private Investors are always very beneficial. This is what INPHO Venture Summit is all about.
At INPHO Venture Summit, meet and interact with private investors active in your fields of interest to discuss concrete possibilities for collaboration and investment. However, exchanging with people you don’t know is not always easy. INPHO Venture Summit brings change and innovation with VC pitching sessions where VCs pitch just like invited start-up companies.
They will indeed pitch in 5 min (timeclock) to introduce their activity, investment strategy, the type of companies they are looking for, their key investment criteria and expectations for investment, before leaving the room allowing for private discussion and exchange.
