The Venture Capital Meet & Greet is a casual monthly event showcasing a Venture Capital Fund and one of its investment managers. Here's how it goes: The Investment Manager kicks off with a 20-minute intro to the fund. Next up is a laid-back 20-minute interview and Q&A session. After that, five founders get the chance to pitch their startups, which have been pre-selected through an application process. The whole thing happens on Zoom, so grab a comfy seat and enjoy!
Venture Capital Meet & Greet is a DeepTechHub organized by Heidelberg Startup Partners together with various partners.
Life science startups have their own set of challenges: The scientific risks are pretty high, they need a lot of money, and it can take years to go from the lab to the patient's bedside. That's why we set aside a whole day each year for investors and founders working in therapeutics, diagnostics, and digital health. Some even call the Life Science Investors' Day Heidelberg a class reunion for the European life science investor community.
The Life Science Investors' Day is put together by Heidelberg Startup Partners, BioLabs Heidelberg, BioRN, and the Life Science Accelerator Baden-Württemberg.
