Introducing eight Seal of Excellence companies to investors next March 18th at 5:00 PM CET

EuroQuity selects the best eight European companies that have recently received a Seal of Excellence certificate.

A selection of 8 companies among the best European Seal of Excellence companies, all looking for funding from EUR 0.3 - 10.0 Mn, will be pitching for 5 minutes each next March 18th at 5:00 PM CET.

All companies received the Seal of Excellence certification, a quality label awarded to project proposals submitted to Horizon 2020, the EU's research and innovation funding programme, to help these proposals find alternative funding. These companies were judged to deserve funding but did not get it due to budget limits and received the Seal of Excellence as they passed the SME Instrument  call selection threshold (only 7% get financed).

This session is dedicated to diverse solutions in agritech, aquaculture, biotech, energy, foodtech, healthtech, medtech, observation space, Saas, check the program below.
