SPEED DATING WITH INVESTORS

Are you ready to find your perfect match? Be careful, you may fall in love. For the first time, sTARTUp Day is literally bringing together startups and investors during the festival days.

Each thematic block includes investors and startups who are interested or working in that particular field of business. All the 1:1 interactions last up to 3 minutes, where startup representatives will introduce their business to the investor, who will decide whether they are interested in continuing discussions later on.


Each startup will get the opportunity to interact with every investor attending the particular topic area and vice versa. The lovely volunteers at sTARTUp Day will signal the participants when it’s time to change the partner and it all starts again. Simple, right? Some would even say that sounds like speed dating.

To make the most out of your event, we have some valuable tips, so listen up! 

For startups:

  Ϟ  Prepare! You have 3 minutes to pitch your idea and only a few seconds to make a positive first impression. 

  Ϟ  Your pitch should be well prepared, efficient and goal oriented.


For investors:

  Ϟ  Think about what key aspects to notice during this short period. 

  Ϟ  Be present and give your attention to each startup. This way, you don't miss out on something life changing.  


Don't forget to:

  Ϟ  Bring your business cards. No laptops, no wasteful marketing materials - just old-fashioned business cards. 

  Ϟ  Be on time and definitely don't miss any of your meetings. You might just miss the love of your life. 

  Ϟ  Last but least: have fun and enjoy the fast energy of the event.
