About the EVC Energy
Being part of the European Venture Contest, the EVC Energy is a specialised event where a select group of renewable energy entrepreneurs has up to eight minutes to convince a panel of investors of their innovative technology, their scalability and business potential. After this ‘pitch’, investors provide strategic feedback to the entrepreneurs and have a chance for Q&A.
The Award Winners (Top 25%) of the EVC Energy will qualify to continue along the European Venture contest, a pan-European contest of venture events that gathers the best of each edition to join the European Venture Summit, Europe’s largest venture capital match-making event, that takes place in December 2013. In addition to that, the award winners will get direct access to Nordic Venture Forum in November 2013.
William Stevens, CEO of Europe Unlimited commented, “Innovation increasingly is the lifeblood of Europe, and in these challenging economic times, it is even more important to do all in our power to boost it further. The opportunities for growth in the energy and utilities sectors should offer good potential to start-up entrepreneurs and investors alike.”
