Investing in early-stage startups is not about addressing today’s issues, it is about fixing tomorrow’s problems.

The next two years will surely look very different than the past two years.

This was the first time I had been to INPHO, but was very impressed by it: the quality of the presenting companies, the calibre of the VCs, the excellent meetings and interactions. I look forward to attending in future, or other related events.

During the INPHO meeting I could meet not only investors in the field of hardware, but also top level entrepreneurs in a wide range of fields of expertise akin to mine. This resulted in quite interesting discussions and potentially new business perspectives.

For deeptech technologies such as Neta’s one, Inpho was a great opportunity to meet key players and investors. This conference dedicated, especially, to hardware had a unique panel of speakers and was really inspiring.

VocalZoom is a disruptive industry 4.0 startup from Israel. We came to INPHO Venture summit in Bordeaux France as part of our fund raising process. The venue took place in a great location, the one on one meetings were well organized and easy to manage, and the networking environment around, including the food were really good and gave incentive for investors to participate. We got at least 3 good leads from the event which is good for a 2 day event.
