After 3 successful editions of Fet2rin trainings helping FET project researchers to “think outside the lab” and fully reach their business and social impact potential, the 4th edition of the training is now open for applications!
Fet2rin, H2020 project EBN is partnering together with META Group and The European Crowdfunding Network AISBL (ECN), aims at facilitating collaborations to set the ground for the take up of FET (Future and Emerging Technologies) projects by overcoming obstacles related to market outreach and accessing business leaders including entrepreneurs, early stage investors and crowdfunding communities.
Divided in 3 workshops, the fourth edition of the training will be held from mid-March to mid May 2018 at EBN premises in Brussels:
- 1st workshop: 15 - 16 March 2018
- 2nd workshop: 12 - 13 April 2018
- 3rd workshop: 17 - 18 May 2018
Why is the training useful for fet researchers ?
Fet2rin mentors and trainers will help the researchers look at FET projects from a different perspective - from the development of the project’s business plan, identifying the customer market, to finding the right financing options, including perfecting their pitch and reaching investors and business angels.
In the current edition of the training, most of the mentors come from EBN Member organisations: Monica Pesce ( VVA Europe Ltd), Philippe Chèvremont (CEEI Héraclès), Mónika Mészáros (Intellexi), Mario Recinella (Innovation et Développement économique Trois-Rivières, and Christophe Bodin (Systematic).
To get a glimpse into what to expect at the training, have a look at last Spring’s edition of the training:
