TECH TABLES – TECH FINANCE/VC INVESTMENT
Welcome to join the hybrid Swedish Chamber of Commerce Tech Table – Tech Finance/ VC Investment on November 29, 2022 at 09:00-11:00 in Amsterdam. This program is a collaboration with TK Tech, Partinc Capital, the Embassy of Sweden in the Netherlands, Dutch Chamber of Commerce in Sweden and Netherlands Innovation Network Sweden.
In this Tech Table, we bring together experts and stakeholders from both Sweden and the Netherlands to explore the dynamic evolvements in Venture Capital, Technology and the various ways companies can become investment ready or boost their innovation through tech investments.
Funding is essential for the growth of startups and scaleups. It is what makes them able to compete on a global stage. What are the bottlenecks and challenges when finding (the right) investors and trying to accelerate growth as a start-up or scale-up?
Making the right investments and introducing the right technology is of the essence for any companies trying to stay innovative. With the ever-increasing ways of investing in technology and innovations, there is a larger need for companies to strategize their use of capital. How can this be done to boost growth and competitivenes?
With this event, we would like to continue to build on our tech network community and therefore encourage all participants to meet up live to share ideas and experiences. However, for those unable to join our live session a link will be provided to the hybrid version.
