The 2016 EBAN Congress, a three day event attended by more than 300 representatives of the early stage financing industry and entrepreneurs from all over the world is about to start.
Taking place at the Palácio da Bolsa in Porto, the summit will centre on the theme of scaleups and how to help solidify the startup ecosystem in Europe to support startups into the scaleup phase. Business angels, family investors, VC funds, business accelerators, seed funds and venture philanthropists are invited to interact with entrepreneurs from all over Europe and the World.
As many in our member community are aware, fledgling firms cannot truly enter the “warp zone” of growth with the help of accelerators, incubators and access to funding alone. A new supporting platform is necessary to guide startups onto a path of sustainable growth – to “scale UP!”
Our programme for the 26th and 27th May, at Palácio da Bolsa, will explore the challenges startups face in becoming “scaleups” and what has been done and what can be done to support them. We invite you to consult our current confirmed speakers’ list on the webpage event.
