#Photonpreneurs - From researcher to CEO, the journey of a serial entrepreneur

2021 22 September

Welcome to the first in our monthly webinar series #Photonpreneurs focusing on investment readiness in the world of photonics. The series will encourage entrepreneurs to present their entrepreneurial experience and funding journey, including how the project came together and different types of funding raised (such as grant, debt, or equity) in a "how we did it" webinar.

For this first webinar, we invited Johan Feenstra, CEO of SMART Photonics, to discuss his background and entrepreneurial journey to date and to share some of the wisdom he has gathered along the way on how to raise capital and run a deeptech company. Learn about the arduous path from research to entrepreneurship, the ups and downs of launching a business, the journey from launching a venture up to acquisition, and how to scale a business as CEO.
