What is the Investors Forum?

Within the framework of FP7 NanoCom we are organising a Nanotechnology Investors Forum in Spring 2012. The specific aim of this forum is to present to selected investors (Business Angels, Venture Capitalists) specific investment opportunities based on nanotechnologies. The forum is a European initiative aimed at facilitating the path to success for spin-offs or start-ups where development has been part funded by a public organisation (European, national, regional). This initiative is also supported by other European nanotechnology related networks and platforms. For more information on EU Nano related networks please visit the NANOfutures platform.

The forum will be held at the Swiss Nano Convention in May 2012. This 3-day event is one of the most important events in nanotechnologies and will bring together the main players in nanotechnologies, allowing participants in the Investors Forum to network and develop partnerships.

For further information visit the Swiss Nano Convention website or download the Investors Forum Flyer (Investors Forum Flyer.pdf). Make sure you register by 30th April 2012!

What are we considering?

The Investors Forum will bring together a mix of projects which involve:

  1. Early stage or more mature business opportunities using nanotechnologies.

  2. Full or part funding of the technology by a public organisation (European, national, regional).
