Need finance to innovate? Register now for the European Photonics Venture Forum, 2-3 June

Wednesday, 27 April, 2016

ACTPHAST is delighted to announce that it is expanding its supports to industry for accelerated innovation in photonics by linking up with the European Photonics Venture Forum (EPVF). With over €3M in funding already allocated to companies, ACTPHAST is making substantial progress in growing the pool of photonics innovation and is continuing to process more project requests every month. However, improving the overall access to far greater levels of finance for photonics innovation by European companies is essential so that technical advances achieved through ACTPHAST-funded innovation projects up to TRL6 can be further financed through to TRL9 to achieve their full market potential.

This is where the EPVF comes in. The event is specifically designed to bring together top level entrepreneurs, investors, corporates and policy makers in an intense and high-energy programme of investment pitching, ideas sharing, networking and direction setting. The next edition of the EPVF will take place on 2 & 3 June in Eindhoven, and we believe this is an opportunity not to be missed and it would be great to see you there.

Applying to pitch your company at EPVF2016 is free of charge. Selected companies invited to pitch at the event will benefit from:

Access for 1 participant to the Forum
Presenting opportunity to a panel of investors and industry experts
Networking with corporate contacts, VCs & fast-growing companies
Visibility through website & company profile
