Join the EdTech circle meetup to find out how to finance your startup.


Finding capital to build a startup is never easy. Even more so for startups in the educational sector, where long sales cycles and small initial profit margins are common.

Besides the difficulties, the rise of impact investing has created new possibilities, where other metrics are now equally relevant as a fast financial return.

What are the most important factors investors consider when it comes to EdTech? How to afford innovation in a sector that everyone thinks is important but not everyone is willing to invest?

Join us in our panel discussion with Ralph Dreßler from DresInvest GmbH and Dr. Jan Alberti, Managing Partner at bmp Ventures AG to find out!
