Join IE Venture Network Helsinki!
Welcome to the second IE Venture Network Helsinki! IE Venture Network (#IEVentureNetwork) is an opportunity for the open entrepreneurial community to share and pitch their own startups while expanding their network with helpful contacts in an informal setting. IE Venture Network Madrid was launched by IE Business School in October 2011 as a weekly initiative.
Since then IE Venture Network, in their different editions worldwide, allows to more than 150 startups every year to engage the entrepreneurial community, promote their startup and at best secure an investment from investors.
During this event, at least three innovative start-ups pitch to a panel of investors to receive feedback, learn from each other and gain insights into the business angels’ market – an invaluable resource for early stage entrepreneurs.
You will also get an update about latest funding options and the status of crowdfunding in Finland during the night.
