The financing of innovative photonics companies in their different growth phases is a serious problem in Europe. Thats why Photonics21 strives to improve the access to financing for European photonics companies. This includes start-up phase financing and growth financing.
This is an overview of the activities Photonics21 is doing in that field.
Together with the European Investment Bank we are conducting Webinars in which different products of the EIB are being introduced. The Webinars are scheduled with a length of around 30 minutes. It is possible to ask questions at the end of the session and get feedback from the EIB expert.
The next Webinar is scheduled for April 28th, 12pm.
Further information and registration can be found on the event page.
After the live sessions we plan to make a recorded version accessible via a video platform.
EUROPEAN PHOTONICS VENTURE FORUM
The European Photonics Venture Forum (EPVF) promotes innovation and investment into the high-tech entrepreneurs from across Europe. This is an extraordinary chance to connect with VCs, entrepreneurs, industry experts and thought leaders to foster new connections, business and investment providing a broad overview of the European photonics ecosystem.
Photonics21 is partnering with TechTour and Actphast 4.0 to conduct the EPVF since several years. The last events have taken place in Eindhoven, Dublin, Barcelona and Munich. As soon as there are further information available on the 2020 and 2021 event we will inform you here.
