09 mrt Investor Day 2020
One of the things startups often struggle with is….. money! It is a well-known fact that finding the proper funding for your idea can sometimes be difficult. One of the many reasons for this is that entrepreneurs are not sufficiently familiar with the range of financing options available. This is why, on February 20th, the first edition of the Philips Innovation Award investor day took place at YES!Delft.
During this day, PHIA participants had the opportunity to obtain tailored advice from some of our investor partners. In addition to this, YES!Delft’s Jan-Geert van Hall held an insightful presentation on some of the ins- and outs of startup funding. After this, the startups sat down 1-on-1 with venture capitalists from INKEF Capital, Slingshot Ventures and InnovationQuarter to discuss the financing side of their business plan. There was a lot of interaction between the startups and YES!Delft mentors as well, which contributed greatly to the innovative atmosphere. All in all, a lot of connections were made and the participants now have a better idea on how to realize the funding of their business. We would like to thank YES!Delft and our investor partners for making this possible.
