Nanotechnology Investors Forum
(Nanowerk News) Are you launching a new business and do you require private investment? Does your product involve nanotechnology?
Have you answered YES?
Then the NanoCom Investors Forum is what you are looking for!
What is the Investors Forum?
Within the framework of FP7 NanoCom we are organising a Nanotechnology Investors Forum in Spring 2012. The specific aim of this forum is to present to selected investors (Business Angels, Venture Capitalists) specific investment opportunities based on nanotechnologies. The forum is a European initiative aimed at facilitating the path to success for spin-offs or start-ups where development has been part funded by a public organisation (European, national, regional). This initiative is also supported by other European nanotechnology related networks and platforms. For more information on EU Nano related networks please visit the NANOfutures platform.
The forum will be held at the Swiss Nano Convention on May 23, 2012. This 3-day event is one of the most important events in nanotechnologies and will bring together the main players in nanotechnologies, allowing participants in the Investors Forum to network and develop partnerships.
What are we looking for?
Early stage or more mature business opportunities using nanotechnologies
Development of the technology must be or have been part funded by a public organisation (European, national, regional)
