EUREKA’s E!nnoVest ‘Business’ Academy will be part of the Innovative Enterprise conference on “Financing Ideas from Europe” (31 March – 1 April 2016, The Hague, Netherlands), aimed to up-skill the entrepreneurs lacking the requisite knowledge in one or more specific areas of commercial and business preparation.
During the second day of the conference (1 April) the morning session will invite stakeholders to explore new insights on what it takes for entrepreneurs and SMEs to be investor ready (see programme). Concretely the session will explore new strategies, tools and needs in fields such as access to finance and investor sensitisation, fruitful matchmaking and preparing entrepreneurs to access finance.
