We are glad to share with you the best parts of Scale-up Champions’ third Demo Day!
The event was hosted online on 23 September, 2021, and organized in collaboration with Wolves Summit. Dozens of stakeholders from across Europe covering all facets of the deep-tech industry gathered to pave the way for innovation, including more than 20 startups and over 50 mentors, corporate professionals, investors, business angels, and venture capitalists.
The event started with a pitching contest, where the top 17 deep-tech startups got the chance to present their disruptive solutions live on stage.
Following the pitching session, six leading experts from the deep-tech startup ecosystem delivered an inspiring panel “Community Building in the deep tech space”.
Miguel Quintas from Parcela Ja, Daniela Esposito from Startup Wise Guys, David Seoane from FundingBox, Maria Hahn from Nutrix, and Scale-up Champions’ mentors and investors Jakob Mikkel and Martin Gorosko analysed the impact of innovation and deep-tech in Europe and discussed how to successfully build community in this area.
In addition to the panelists, more than 50 investors participated too, among which we could find delegates from the following entities:
Last, but not least, it’s also worth giving a spotlight on the 1:1 sessions that put closure to this thriving day. All the participating startups and investors had the chance to hold individual meetings that generated new opportunities for deals, businesses, and partnerships.
The Scale-up Champions team is grateful to all the entrepreneurs, industry leaders and innovators who that joined this event and contributed to unlock the power of connections to shape a booming European startup ecosystem.
