Investment Summit with Wayra Germany
Calling all Seed and Series A startups!
Investment Summit invites top startups to pitch their company to a panel of top investors from our network.
Each startup will give a 5-minute pitch, followed by a 5-minute Q&A, to our panel of investors. Later in the day, the investors meet 1:1 with each founder to share feedback for the founders to improve their pitch, ask any remaining questions about the startup, and discuss what's next.
For this edition of our Investment Summit, we're joining forces with our partner Wayra Germany, to curate a panel of top investors from across Europe, and connect startups from our collective ecosystem to investment opportunities.
Apply here to participate as a startup founder.
