Aankondiging Early stage funding

Early Stage Funding

Learn about funding options for your company.   For Startups and SME companies in chemistry, especially related to sustainability and circularity.

For chemical companies this involves particular challenges. Three speakers will share their expertise and experience to introduce you to various forms of early stage funding: typically grants, private investors and loans.

You will discover the pros and cons of each financing option for your company. We will take a closer look at funding from private investors: how does it work and what to expect. From a private investor you will learn about his approach and what he looks for in a company. Of course there will be plenty of opportunity to ask your questions and to make new contacts.
