Benelux Venture Forum 2017, by Tech TourEvent date: November 21, 201721:31u
End date: November 22, 2017
The 17th edition of Tech Tour’s Benelux Venture Forum (BVF) will be held on November 21 and 22. This is an event where promising entrepreneurs, active regional and international investors and companies looking for investments and partnerships meet. It’s an excellent opportunity for the Brightlands campuses to show their best sides. This year, Brightlands will be a host partner at the event.
BVF plays an important role in innovation in Europe and the Benelux. It provides a boost for high-tech startups and promotes the Benelux countries as being innovative, appealing and interesting areas to do business with or invest in.
Presentations by startups
A panel of experts will give 40 startups the opportunity to present themselves to venture capitalists, corporate investors and business angels. The startups registered for the event are evaluated in terms of their business potential, the merits of their products and technologies, the quality of the project profile, and interest in investments and partnerships. The top ten startups will then qualify to enter the European Venture Contest Finals which will be held on December 11 and 12 in Düsseldorf.
