Family Day 2017
A warm THANK YOU to all participants, speakers, panelists, pitchers and workshop-leaders!
The FD17 was again a huge success with more than 1.000 participants and 1.500 one-on-one meetings.
A few highlights of this two-day event include the Unicorn-hunter Daniel Gutenberg as well as the adventurer who traveled the world by bike Rob Lilwall. We also had great fun with 25 pitches from our portfolio companies. The videos of those pitches can be found in our YouTube-Channel.
Both of our MDs Michael Brandkamp and Alex Frankenberg held the opening speeches on both days which were inspiring and very informative! Alex started the inauguration of HTGF III which we later continued with all 28 fundinvestors and even our minister Brigitte Zypries live from berlin. During the informative workshops on pricing innovation, SME instruments, PE-readiness of VC-backed companies and different ESOP options all attendees engaged in lively discussions. A total of 10 investors from Germany, US, UK, Israel and the Netherlands gave us insights into their investment criteria and company philosophy. We rounded up day one with a great and entertaining Seed Club and day two with a lot of networking, a start-up exhibition and first negotiations on the next financing round between 240 start-ups and 400 investors.
Mark your calendars: FD18 will take place on May 29 and 30, 2018.
