Connecting Startups with Investors at EVM

By Toni Ellis |

As part of the upcoming Berlin Web Week, the European Venture Market will be once again holding the spring edition of their two day conference on May 8-9 at Palais am Festungsgraben. The conference, which is held twice a year in Berlin and Liechtenstein, is designed for active investors who are in ‘deal mode,’ innovative entrepreneurs in the startup scene, and industry partners and influences from across Europe and the world.

Unlike NEXT, which takes place on the same two days, EVM is specifically aimed at creating personal connections between startups and potential investors and VCs, and further develop ideas and projects, rather than covering a variety of talks and topics.

Budding entrepreneurs will also have the opportunity to present their companies and business ideas to a crowd of investors, as well as designated time for one-to-one meetings and pitches, and a coaching day prior to the conference.

Keynote speakers will include Carsten Sudhoff of the World Economic Forum and serial entrepreneur Morten Lund of Venture Capital firm LundKenner.

While pitching positions for e-marketing, mobile and apps are already filled, EVM still has open times for e-commerce and cloud computing projects to pitch to over 200 investors at the event. The positions are open for startups at any stage of development.

Companies looking to pitch or investors looking take part can still register online, and if you want more more information on upcoming Berlin Web Week events and need help avoiding conference confusion, don’t forget to read our BWW guide.
