Mondays for Innovation | e-Pitch your COVID-19 Solution in front of investors

Back to all posts

In these challenging COVID-19 times, EBN continues to provide opportunities to you, our members, and the companies you support. This time, additionally to the #EBNvsCoVID19 campaign, we are facilitating rapid scaling-up fundraising for companies with COVID-19 solutions of any type.

We are pleased to inform you that in collaboration with the European Business Angels Network (EBAN) we are launching two (2) online fund-raising e-pitches for our members’ companies working on concrete and innovative solutions to tackle the spread of the virus.

The objective of this new e-pitching initiative titled Mondays for Innovation is to provide opportunities for companies looking to raise pre-series-A/series-A funding to pitch their solutions. Selected companies will have a total of 5 minutes for their pitch, during which companies are expected to outline their solution but also delve into what they are looking for in terms of investments, partnerships, or distribution channels in other EU countries, etc. After each pitch, a dynamic 10 minutes Q&A session directly with investors takes place.

A unique opportunity to pitch to interested investors, get in direct contact with them and raise substantial funding

What are we looking for? 

Companies operating in the following sectors:

  • Infection Support Technologies and Materials (i.e. 3D printing of protection and respiratory materials).
  • Medical (i.e. Medication; vaccines and medical diagnosis).
  • Clever Teleworking (i.e. tools, applications or programmes developed to support professionals work from home).
