Counting on already 15 investors coming up BioeconomyVentures will held the second Brokerage & Matchmaking event in the frame of World Bio Markets on 11th May.

World Bio Markets is the leading international business event for the global bioeconomy community, connecting over 400 industry leaders with a two-day programme of knowledge exchange, 1-2-1 meetings, and networking.

Over 100 startups and spinoffs will be welcomed who, in addition to attending the BioeconomyVentures workshop, will also be able to attend World Bio Markets on both days and benefit from the incredible learning and connectivity opportunities available.

World Bio Markets is committed to improving startup success rates and driving the commercialisation of the sector so we can accelerate the transition to a bio based economy.

The two-day event connects and generates deal flow between bio developers and producers, global brands and buyers, investors and financiers, suppliers and community enablers.

Here a draft agenda of the BioeconomyVentures event:

13:30 Welcome words and overview

14:00 – 15:00 Investor Fire Side Chat

15min seat arrangement

15:15 – 17:00 Matchmaking between Startups and investors (15min meetings)

The Investor Panel will be in the format of a “fireside chat” focused on investor insights on access to finance within the bioeconomy. The panel aim to bring together representatives of different investments funds and venture capitalists to discuss the latest trends, opportunities and threats within the bioeconomy sector, as well as best/worst practices for bioeconomy startups when fundraising. While investors are encouraged to disclose their target market, ticket size, and investment return expectations, the discussion is expected to go beyond that, and possibly develop in an organic matter either towards topics of particular interest for the present circumstances and/or pressing issues within the bioeconomy sector. Ideally, the discussion would enable the attending startups/scaleups to improve their understanding of the investor needs and way of thinking.
