Review: “Matching Series A” in Frankfurt

Titel: Business Angels Rhein Main/Hessen Trade&Invest

For the second time, Business Angels FrankfurtRhein-Main, Hessen Trade and Invest and Deutsche Börse Venture Network® hosted the “Matching Series A” event at the House of Logistics & Mobility in Frankfurt/Main. Ten companies presented their business models in front of more than 50 business angels, corporate VCs and family offices.

Andreas Lukic, Chairman of the Management Board Business Angels FrankfurtRhein-Main, Peter Fricke, Head of Deutsche Börse Venture Network, and Olaf Jüptner, Scale-up advisor, Hessen Trade and Invest, held the opening remarks before they handed over to the companies. Ten start-ups and scale-ups presented their business concepts in ten-minute presentations, like Deutsche Börse Venture Network members Giromatch and Catana Capital, two Frankfurt-based fintechs.

In addition to the presentations, the participants used the free time to network and get to know other companies that presented themselves with stands in the event area.

Tobias Hasenjäger, Senior Investment Manager VNG Innovation GmbH, explains: “There are now numerous events in this format. This matching event was one of the highest quality events I have ever attended. Promising start-ups met committed business angels and institutional investors. There were a lot of possibilities to network.”

The next edition is planned for September 2018.
