If you are a start-up looking for funding, this is really a unique opportunity to pitch to top investors (Angels and VCs) in Milan, London, Frankfurt, Paris, New York and San Francisco. Every investor Arena Meeting is attended by, on average, 75 selected investors. Many of the start-ups that went through this program in previous editions have successfully closed one or more rounds of funding. One of the finalists from last year is now incubated at 500 Startups.
If you have already gone through start-up bootcamps in your career you might be doubtful whether there will be any value in attending yet another one. Having gone through the program ourselves, we really think there is something special about this one. The group / one-to-one sessions held by Bill Barber and his team at Maverick Angels are top quality. They really focus on helping you improve the pitch and provide some great insights on how to approach investors and fine-tune your 10 slide presentation.
3. Networking with other start-ups
You will have the opportunity to meet and bond with start-ups from different tech fields and countries. Going through each stage of the program you will meet great fellow entrepreneurs and share ideas, experiences, feedback and insights that can be extremely valuable.
4. Intesa Sanpaolo Partner Network
Being the second largest Italian bank, with a significant presence abroad, Intesa Sanpaolo reaches out to a large network of partners, service providers as well as large corporate organizations. These contacts can be extremely useful for start-ups looking to grow their business. The focus is on funding, but you will get much more out of it (media coverage, meeting potential partners, customers.)
5. Free to Join!
There is no fee to join and the submission only takes a few minutes to complete. We really think that, if selected, you will benefit hugely from the program!
If you have any question or need any further clarification, feel free to send us a message at firstname.lastname@example.org. All the best on your submission and we hope to see many of you at the first bootcamp weekend in Milan on October 2nd !
