The BioLinX project supports participants in FP7 and H2020 projects to commercialize their innovative ideas, and to connect them to knowledge, regional networks, new partners and funding opportunities.
The Venture Capital Forum is a great opportunity for highly promising entrepreneurs active in the bio economy and international or regional investors and corporations seeking investment and partnerships to take part in a high-energy programme of pitching, ideas-sharing, networking and direction-setting. It aims to market the bio economy sector to a wider investor community and to create channels to finance and to further development for high-potential businesses in the field. The Forum will ensure that it becomes a pillar of local regional development plans, mirroring the European strategy and driving more support and funding to the sector.
The registration for the Forum is open to:
– entrepreneurs active in the bio economy sector based in Europe (preferably agro/agrowaste/lignocel)
– international and regional investors and corporations seeking investment and partnerships
15 selected companies will gain access to a free coaching session on ‘VC-pitching’ on Day 1 and on Day 2 will be given a unique opportunity to present their business projects and to network with the audience of experts in innovation, Business Angels, Venture Capitalists, Corporate and Institutional investors and peers. All the presenting projects are reviewed by an expert jury composed of relevant key industry players and based on the following criteria: Business potential, Team experience, Product/Technological merit, Competitive position, Investment or partnering interest and Presentation quality.
