EFIB PitchFest 2016 is a programme of investor-ready support for innovative SMEs seeking an opportunity to secure a minimum €1 million investment for their business. SMEs will be taken through a programme of business mentoring and pitch training provided by their regional agency. One SME from each region will be selected to pitch to a judging panel of investors in a specially formatted session during the European Forum for Industrial Biotechnology and the Bioeconomy (EFIB) conference, 18-20 October in Glasgow, Scotland.
After each of our pitchers do their quick-fire 7 minute presentations, our panel of investors will give their verdict on what they think of the projects and the potential for gaining investment.
Investor judging panel:
Michael-Jean Nettersheim, Investment Manager, BASF VC
John Williams, Senior Partner and Chief Technical Officer, S’InvesTec LLC
Joško Bobanović, Partner, Sofinnova Partners
Philipp Hasler, Investment Director, Emerald Technology Ventures
Ludwig Goris, Investment Manager, Capricorn Venture Partners
