The VentureConnect Foundation announces that the 11th edition of VentureConnect will take place on 3rd June 2015, in partnership with the Business Incubator of the Bucharest University of Economic Studies (ASE) and with the support of Biris Goran law firm.
The Business Incubator is an ASE project to be launched at the end of February that was created with the purpose of fostering the entrepreneurial spirit of students, master students and PhD students of the academy and to provide them with support in their entrepreneurial activity.
The 11th edition of VentureConnect will be hosted in ASE’s Aula Magna and will stand out by a new approach, but also with the support of some notable guests, business angels and investment funds from the American Continent. Moreover, the VentureConnect Foundation opens the session for this event’s pitches submissions.
The entrepreneurs willing to present their business in front of some of the most important investment funds, accelerators, incubators in Romania and Europe can submit the projects until 13th May 2015 on the event’s website: www.ventureconnect.ro. Before the event, VentureConnect Foundation shall organize two mentoring sessions to support the finalist entrepreneurs with respect to efficiency and structure of the pitch, public speaking skills and discourse elaboration.
The VentureConnect event shall include two pitching sessions: the first part shall be dedicated to students and early-stage companies in search for seed investment, and the second part shall be dedicated to more mature companies in search for a more substantial capital input.
“After more than four years since we launched the project, we take pride in a community of over 400 companies which visited VentureConnect and came in touch with investors. We are glad to be able to offer the Romanian entrepreneurs access to an important network of contacts in Romania, Europe and the American continent, and that VentureConnect is the place where investments happen”, states Ana Maria Andronic, co-founder of VentureConnect.
