Pitch your business at InvestEU Matchmaking event in Brussels on 19 March 2019



On 19 March 2019 the European Commission is organizing the InvestEU Matchmaking event 2019, powered by the European Investment Project Portal (EIPP) , the EU's online matchmaking Portal connecting EU-based project promoters with investors worldwide; and the Seal of Excellence (SoE). The event will take place at The Egg, Rue Bara 175, 1070 in Brussels.
 
Why should you participate?
The objective of this unique event will be to allow Seal holders based in the EU with a Phase 2 proposal that requires financing above 1M€ to meet investors and pitch them their idea.

After welcome and keynote addresses by Vice-President Jyrki Katainen and Commissioner Carlos Moedas, public and private sectors will discuss sustainable finance and innovation, and the European Commission will outline the main supporting initiatives in these areas, namely the Investment Plan for Europe, the InvestEU programme as well as the Horizon 2020 and Horizon Europe programmes. Private investors will provide their views and advice on how to attract ideas and increase chances of securing financing.

After the panel discussions, 200 selected Seal of Excellence holders will attend a dedicated matchmaking session, where they will be able to pitch their ideas bilaterally to up to 50 interested investors.

If you wish to be considered among those 200 participants, please submit your project proposal awarded with the Seal of Excellence by clicking this link.

The deadline is next 15 February.
 
What if you are selected?
After the deadline, the Commission will shortlist 200 potential participants and will notify by email if your organization has been selected to participate in the event.

You will receive a personal link, which will allow you to register, and further information and instructions from Brella .
NB: For all attendees participating the full day and travelling from outside Belgium, accommodation but not travel costs will be covered by the European Commission.
