Some types of innovative startups and scale-ups have to rely on attracting risk capital to finance the company because of the rapid growth they are experiencing or because the go-to-market time frame is long with relatively high development costs. To facilitate this specific group of start-ups, and their funding needs, the Financing Desk (Financieringsloket) is organizing Investor Day.
Investor Day is a matchmaking event, where a maximum of six innovative startups and scale-ups can pitch their investment to 20 to 30 investors. The companies are typically early-stage or early-growth and are looking for a capital injection of € 100.000 up to € 2 million in return for shares in the company.
The investors at the event are coming from early-stage Venture Capital firms, active Business Angels, Family Offices, or regional & national investment agencies. For the investors, it is a good opportunity to see and meet in a short period several ambitious companies who are in the market for fundraising at the moment.
The companies can apply for participation but they have to pass a selection phase that consists of sending an outline of the investment proposition and a short interview. Among other things, it is assessed to what extent the financing strategy fits the life phase of the company. If companies are selected they will receive intensive guidance and feedback on their pitches beforehand. The process is managed by an experienced consultancy firm that will select based on the “investment readiness” of the proposition for this specific group of investors.
The next Investor Day will take place on 11 November 2021 from 14 to18 hours at the Buccaneer in Delft. Find out more
