Designed for entrepreneurs by entrepreneurs

 

Are you a tech company from Europe developing tech solutions in the Deep Tech field?

 

Solve your liquidity issues, exchange contacts, secure growth, and investment by working together with 15 peers and active investors in our online collaborative program. The program includes a series of online sessions and a 2-day live event that would take place in October 2020 (date will be announced soon) in London, the United Kingdom.

 

Are you ready to show up and make a difference?

 

NB! Whether the live event takes place or not depends on government regulations. In case it is still not allowed to travel and meet, we will substitute it with an online event. Check this website for updates.
