Bridging the Gap between Investors & Startups v2

Cyprus - 14/11/2018

After the success of the first event host in October, the second part of “Bridging the Gap between Investors & Startups” series is coming soon. The event organized by the local leader CyRIC (Cyprus Research & Innovation Center Ltd.) will be held on next Wednesday, November 14th, in the offices of Gravity Incubator in Nicosia.  

The scope of the event is to acknowledge the startups from Cyprus on what Early Stage Investors expect from them. Participants will get familiarized with the investor pitching process and will get trained to develop proper pitch decks and get knowledge on how to deal and negotiate with investors. This event will be a good opportunity for the entrepreneurs to get in contact with some of the new community of investors that is growing in Cyprus.

ESIL (Early Stage Investing Launchpad) supports the organization of this event with a training session by Mr. René Reijtenbagh, Founder Business Angels Connect, Vice President at Business Angels Europe (René Reijtenbagh Linkedin). Mr. René Reijtenbagh will deliver a training session on “Prepare and find investors/financing and the process of closing the deal. The do’s and dont’s from a practical point of view”. Mr. Reijtenbagh will share his accumulated knowledge and experience from his involvement in the startup investing sector, guiding the participants towards getting prepared for an early stage investment.

There will be another training delivered by Mr. Peter Lazou, who will perform an interactive workshop on creating an appealing pitch deck.

The event is strictly for startups and founders that are mature and would like to get prepared for an Early Stage Investment. Startups attending the event/workshop that are closest to an early stage investment and are at the required Investment Readiness Level will be selected to pitch in front of investors in our program’s final event in January 2019.

Moreover, the selected startups will have the chance to work and get prepared for their pitching, with CyRIC’s and Gravity’s Incubator team.
