The University Alliance Ruhr, the DWIH New York and Ruhr University Bochum’s Project Worldfactory International invite you to a virtual roundtable workshop to compare the German and American funding landscapes and cultures, looking at commonalities and differences and the overarching themes across the Atlantic.
We are going to analyze the relationship between a startup and its pathways to funding from the perspectives of both the startup and the investor: What are the expectations/fears/goals of a startup? On the flip side, what are funders looking for when they decide to invest in a startup?
The goal of the roundtable is to establish a roadmap together. We will focus on university-affiliated startups with a tech/digital business model and the unique position they occupy in 2021/2022 with reference to funding and funding opportunities.
The event is limited to 40 participants and intended for (future) startup foundersspecifically with a university-affiliation, industry professionals and VCs.
Information about the program and the speakers can be found here.
