Events: E-pitches link chemicals sector companies with top investors
On 18 September, six companies in the chemicals industry supported by the European Innovation Council (EIC) pilot, pitched their innovative ideas via webcam to four investors during the first e-pitching session of the year.
The companies were given five minutes to pitch, discuss and clarify their innovative ideas. This was followed by a Q&A session allowing the investors to identify how each company matches with their specific investment criteria.
Jan Horvath, Managing Director of SME company PEWAS commented on the e-pitching format: “Not only it is a great platform to e-meet with relevant industry leaders, potential investors, and cooperating entities, but also a very peculiar form to experience and practice how to get your business mission across. I recommend any SME to participate and get the most out of it.”
Joost Waeterloos - Corporate Venturing at DOW made special mention of the professionalism of the event, describing it as, “a well organised event, time well spent”.
Investor Thierry Piret from Solvay Ventures: “best e-pitching session I have attended”.
Our next e-pitching will include EIC funded companies working in the sector of renewable energy. If you would like to get involved with the next e-pitching session the deadline is 22 September.
The e-pitching will be held on the 31 October, 11:00 -13:30 (CET) online. If you are interested in joining and to be selected, don’t miss out on this opportunity and update your profile straight away.
