Digital Investor Talks USA

Online event
Target group:
for investors & companies

The kick-off in 2021 will be our Investor Talks series with a focus on the USA. Take advantage of this opportunity: Approach new potential investors remotely and expand your international visibility. Take part in our Investor Talks on 11 February 2021 and make new contacts with numerous national and international investors, especially from the US and the network of our partner, Silicon Valley Bank.

How does the format work?

First, all participating start-ups will pitch their companies in approximately seven-minute pitches, directly followed by short Q&A sessions. The format ends with a breakout networking session. We set up a virtual room for each start-up so that interested investors can talk directly to the founders. 

Based on our experiences from 2020, we focus on targeted 1-on-1 matchmaking in the follow-up. 

Advantages for companies:

This unique digital pitch opportunity offers a virtual stage to initiate new investor contacts via:

  • Presentation of the company to an exclusive group of investors (focus USA)
  • Direct exchange with peers, other companies and investors, both from the Deutsche Börse Venture Network and with contacts of our partner, Silicon Valley Bank 
  • 1-on-1 arrangement and targeted intros after the event 
  • Access to contact details of potential prospects (if consent is given)

Registration for companies

The number of slots is limited; thus a short application is necessary for participation. Application is possible until 9 December. Please click on the "Register" button above. Our members will receive further details about the requirements for participation, the format and the current state of planning by e-mail.

The format in brief

At the Investor Talks, 10 to 15 companies of Deutsche Börse Venture Network from various industries present their business models to selected investors. Companies can currently conduct or plan a financing round, but this is not a prerequisite. Following the pitches, companies and investors are given the opportunity to network and meet in 1-on-1 talks - this year also virtually.

Since we are again offering a digital version of the format and are not limited to a single location, more investors than usual are expected to participate. We are expecting both national and international investors, focusing on either early or late stage companies. Through the cooperation with Silicon Valley Bank, the focus will be on US investors.
