Scale-up Champions has launched a call for its Investment Readiness Programme, a unique opportunity to take part in this initiative that comprises a set of training activities to increase the fundraising capacity of deep-tech startups and a series of networking events to connect entrepreneurs, corporates, mentors and investors from all over Europe. This is the third and last call for this Programme, which held two previous editions in the fall of 2020 and in the spring of 2021.
Applications will be open until 13 September for startups working in deep-tech that want to accelerate their growth. All the applicants will undergo a challenge-based selection to identify the best projects. The chosen ones will then be matched and provided mentoring sessions, followed by a series of workshops, networking events and individual meetings with experts. Once the startups are prepared and equipped to raise investment, they will be brought together with investors, business angels and venture capitalists to pitch their ideas.
In addition to startups, Scale-Up Champions also invites investors, business angels, venture capitalists and mentors to join the programme and lead the transformation in the deep-tech ecosystem. They will be the first ones to discover disruptive brand-new startups and have the chance to expand their market knowledge and insights, explore innovation trends and network with fellow investors to discuss and assess investment opportunities.
The Investment Readiness Programme seeks on the one hand, to improve the investment-readiness of the participating startups by providing them with training and a series of tools and, on the other, it aims to unlock the full potential of the European deep-tech startup ecosystem by increasing international collaboration and connecting key players across different countries, so that they can leverage the strengths from different startup scenes.
