#Photonpreneurs is a new webinar series focusing on investment readiness in the world of photonics. The series will encourage entrepreneurs to present their entrepreneurial experience and funding journey, including how their project came together and different types of funding raised (such as grant, debt, or equity) in a "how we did it" webinar format.

For the first episode of the series - titled “#Photonpreneurs - From researcher to CEO, the journey of a serial entrepreneur” - PhotonHub Europe has invited Johan Feenstra, CEO of SMART Photonics, to discuss his background and entrepreneurial journey to date and to share some of the wisdom he has gathered on how to raise capital and run a deeptech company. During the first 45 minutes of the webinar, Johan will be interviewed by none other than PhotonDelta, who participated in SMART Photonics' previous funding round. This live discussion format is doubly guaranteed to provide attendees with a wealth of personal insights and personal tips, as well as answer some fundamental questions entrepreneurs have in their quest for growth:

  • How to raise your next funding round?
  • When is the right time to look for capital?
  • What options does one have?
  • What are the do’s and don’ts of raising capital?

At the end of the event, attendees will be able to participate in a live Q&A and ask their questions directly to Johan and PhotonDelta. Don’t miss out! Book your free ticket for the webinar on Eventbrite:
