FintechFFM Meetup : Corporate VCs – Best of both worlds?

May 23 @ 18:30 - 22:00

In collaboration with FinTechFFM, we at TechQuartier are happy to welcome several corporate VCs for what promises to be a most interesting evening.

Frankfurt may not (yet) be the biggest hub for start-ups in Europe, but it is home to a variety of strong corporations and by now most of them are very active to foster innovation driven by young companies.

Who has ever said that incumbents aren’t able to “deal” with start-ups? Have you ever heard of Corporate VCs?!
These players can offer a unique combination of capital and subject expertise, as well as a lot of potential for leveraging an existing client base and opportunities for further collaborations. But can they really fulfill the dreams of a start-up, or is there also a downside to the story?

On May 23rd, different corporate VCs will meet at TechQuartier to discuss.

We will turn the tables and let them pitch their service offerings and subsequently enter an open discussion.
For all you startups out there, this will be an unique chance to get these many influencial players in one room and to get in touch!!!
