Master Track Finance

Are you seeking funding for your brilliant innovation or idea? Raising funds for growth and innovation can be a time-consuming activity, for start-ups as well as multinationals. In addition, there are many possibilities regarding European subsidies which remain unused.

During the Master track ‘How to Finance Innovation’ on Wednesday 13 February, experts will help you with interactive sessions and tailored advice concerning funds, subsidies and other innovation initiatives. This is your chance to get to know several different fund managers, and to learn how other entrepreneurs have raised funds in the past.
