Last month EUREKA launched a new pilot programme to support innovative SMEs in seeking private investment. The EUREKA HTIP, or High Tech Investment Programme is organised in partnership with EBAN and Europe Unlimited, both leading pan-European investors networks.
The EUREKA HTIP takes SMEs through a tailor-made programme to develop their investment readiness. It consists of a series of online and onsite training, such as webinars and investment venture academies and forums (see below).
A total of 123 SME-representatives have so far attended the two first Awareness webinars developed as part of the programme. The presentation given is available online, and many more materials and information can be found on the programme’s website.
In the next few weeks, three Investment readiness webinars will take place to address crucial challenges which entrepreneurs are facing when looking for investment:
