Hightech Venture Days | October 17 – 18 | Dresden
The HIGHTECH VENTURE DAYS are the leading deal-sourcing program in Europe in terms of funding high-tech startups. Every year HighTech Startbahn brings selected European high-tech companies and international investors together in Dresden, in form of this investors’ congress specialized in high-tech. Since 2013, the event enabled 238 selected capital seeking high-tech startups and growth companies from the 6 key technology fields (Machinery- & Plant Engineering, Micro- & Nanoelectronics, ICT, Environment-/Energy Technologies, Materials, Life Sciences and Transport & Logistics) to present their companies to inter-national investors like Business Angels, Venture Capitalists, Corporate VCs, Banks and the „investing Mittelstand“ in a curated exhibition and high qualitative pitches with subsequent Q/A in a private and exclusive atmosphere. As a result of the program, 15% of the presenting companies received funding within 12-18 months after the event. www.hightech-venture-days.com
