PITCH ARENA 3
Clean Technology: Innovation to better our world
January 27, 2020
The event is designed to bring growth companies together with large investors.
In addition to matching attractive, pre-screened companies with investors, the event also has a clear educational component. To this end, the event sets out to share insights with aspiring entrepre- neurs with respect to the skills necessary to building strong business ideas and presenting them in a compelling fashion. The jury of large investors is also selected to share valuable knowledge with the intention of helping participating compa- nies grow and prosper. In this way, the event should inspire aspiring entrepreneurs and offer investors access to attractive investment opportunities.
Each Founder gives a 10’ pitch presentation in the growth company competition, followed by 10’ Q&A with a team of jury members. The jury consists of established capital owners.
In addition, the audience votes anonymously to rank the quality of the business ideas. RFS will help the winners of the audience prize by connecting them with large investors via 1-on-1 meetings to help them raise growth capital.
