#B2B #earlystage #revenue

Vendep Startup Fund’s second pitching event will be organized as lunch sessions every Monday - Wednesday - Friday during the next six weeks. The aim is to exchange learnings and discuss ambitious growth plans with promising early-stage companies with revenue and excellent opportunities to become international successes especially in Europe and the US. The participants will be selected from open applications. The only requirements are that the companies fall within the investment strategy of Vendep's Startup Fund I and that they have revenue validation for their product or services. Please apply here

The best growth plan will be rewarded with tickets to the Silicon Valley and meetings with entrepreneurs, investors and advisors from Vendep's network. 

"I am looking forward to meeting 15-20 early-stage companies which are looking to become a category leader during the next 5 years. Strong growth plans require smart hypothesis to be set for the market and the go-to-market model. Convincing proof and validation are key for finding investors and customers willing to invest millions of euros into an early-stage company. We are looking to share what we have learned about growth and looking forward to finding the best growth plan to reward from this event,” Vendep CEO Sakari Pihlava says.

The event will be organized between the 15th of September and 30th of October. The best growth plan will be announced 2nd of November, 2015 and awarded with a ticket to the Silicon Valley. This event targets 15-20 early-stage companies with focus on strong international growth and 500.000 euro or more revenue for early market validation.
