When  start-ups and investors come together through successful presentations

That’s how you could describe the 5th Venture Day in Karlsruhe which is organized annually by CyberForum. At this year’s »meet’n’speed«, 16 innovative and interesting start-ups from all over Germany looking for funding came together with roughly 30 investors,  so-called Venture Capitalists und Business Angels. As with speed dating, the start-up founders were given 7 minutes to talk to each investor and convince them of  their business idea, their team, and their potential.

Successful pitching following Venture Day

To contribute to the pitching contest’s success, EXPLAIN sent concept expert and coach Kailey Peng to do an entertaining workshop with the teams as a warm-up for the pitch that followed. In addition to that, we issued a prize for second place in the form of free participation in one of our public training courses.

It was awarded to Caprimed GmbH from Heidelberg that now has the pleasure of attending one of our three upcoming public training courses – they have yet to decide which one:

»Develop your Presentation« is the title of our training, which is geared to anyone who wants to plan a presentation effectively. »Design your Presentation« is a classic that helps you to better design your slides and »Deliver your Presentation« helps you reach the next skills level as speaker and performer. No matter which one they decide on – we wish start-up founders Angelo Cardinale and Simon Prieß good luck with their next level and: have fun!
