Tech Tour Energy in Transition Programme

 

Designed for entrepreneurs by entrepreneurs

 

Are you a scale-up from Europe developing tech solutions in the Energy field?

 

Solve your liquidity issues, exchange contacts, secure growth, and investment by working together with 15 peers and active investors in our online collaborative programme. The programme includes a series of online sessions and a possibility of a small-scale 2-day live event that would take place on 23-24 November 2020 (to be confirmed) in Rotterdam, The Netherlands.

 

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.
