The Investors’ Dinner is part of the new initiative BerlinBalticNordic.net by media:net berlinbrandenburg – in cooperation with EIT Digital and supported by Berlin Partner.
At the beginning, Dolf Wittkamper, Head of Business Development Accelerator at EIT Digital, and Andrea Peters, board chairwoman of the media:net berlinbrandenburg, welcomed the participants from more than ten different countries, such as Finland, Estonia, Sweden, France, UK, USA, Lithuania and the region Berlin-Brandenburg (Germany).
Before the dinner could actually start, Andrea Peters explained “rules”: At each table there were four startups and up to three investors. Each course prior, a round took place were every startup had one minute to pitch and then another five minutes to answer questions of the investors or to discuss. Thereafter the next startup had a turn.
While enjoying the delicious menus, the relaxed atmosphere of the Huone enabled to establish business contacts between the participants.
The whole program was jointly organized by EIT Digital, BerlinBalticNordic.net and supported by Berlin Partner.
We would like to thank all our sponsors and partners for the support and the team of Huone for the good and friendly service.
