Scale-up Champions held its virtual Demo Day on February 25, which counted with the participation of more than 20 investment-ready disruptive startups working to scale-up their growth and over 40 investors, venture capitalists, business angels, advisors and corporate professionals from all over Europe.
During the session, we were thrilled to listen to the pitches of 17 ambitious and forward-thinking deep-tech startups. The winner of the pitching contest was Renderro, a provider of cloud solutions for digital content creation, which was awarded a guaranteed spot in the Great Pitch Contest semi-finals of the Wolves Summit 13th edition, happening on 24-26th of March.
These were the first of 17 innovative “SUPERSTARS” pitching their ground-breaking projects:
In addition to the pitches hearing, there was also a Networking / Business Mixing session where investors seeking new business opportunities met with the participating startups. There were around 30 different meetings and some of the internationally renowned ecosystem funds participating were Inovo Venture Partners, Valuetech Seed Fund, SpeedUp Venture Capital Group, Gold Venture Investments, Speedinvest, Sunfish Partners, and Adamed.
On top of that, there was a knowledge session hosted by Marcin Jaraczewski, partner at Lawmore, who focused on the most important legal aspects of venture capitalists’ and business angel’s investments. He also took a closer look at several possible investment models and how they work in the EU: a standard investment process, convertible note and SAFE model.
After 3-months long Investment Readiness programme’s activities, the participants had an opportunity to engage practically in the most common scenarios for their upcoming funding and investment opportunities.
From Scale-up Champions we want to extend a huge THANK YOU to everyone who attended this event! We can’t wait to see you in future editions!
