Mario Esteban is a Co-Founder of Obuu, a Spanish startup that’s providing logistic optimization tools. Even though he’s been to Portugal before, he’s never been to Porto. But Obuu will soon be in the city, which they expect to be “wonderful”, using Mario’s words.
As part of its Annual Congress 2016 – Scaleup For Europe – EBAN will be organising an InvestHorizon Early Stage Camp and Investment Forum on 25th May 2016.
Tens of national and international startups will be gathering in Porto to receive training and for the opportunity to pitch to investors coming from all across the globe to the event.
The Early Stage Camp will offer to the presenting companies the opportunity to learn from the best in interactive workshops on investment readiness for their venture, before offering them the chance to test their pitch in a dry-run exercise.
Investors will then gather for the Global Investment Forum to listen to the companies’ pitches and provide them with direct feedback on their idea, their business plan and pitching performance. This will also be a great opportunity for them to network with the investor ecosystem and to exchange with peers.
“We want to learn a lot about investment, to know more about the EBAN network and the European Business Angel ecosystem, and to meet interesting contacts who could, in a near future, invest in us or maybe help us grow in the right direction.” – says Mario.
While startups from countries like Spain, Germany, Poland or Denmark will be seeking for opportunities in Porto, some of the best Portuguese startups will also be representing our country and growing with the experience.
Clickly, for instance, is coming from Lisbon to “network with potential investors and partners”, according to Operations Manager, Diana Ribeiro.
“Porto is a great city with a lot of business opportunities” – says Juan Bueso, CEO at TextilEnergy, coming from Spain.
We are for sure working to meet their expectations and to make Porto a home for opportunities!
