Meet the Innovators Matchmaking & Resource Event for Companies
It is a well-known fact for most business leaders that innovation is critical, in order to stay ahead of the curve and remain relevant. Small, innovative start-ups often have the drive, flexibility and creativity to be a disruptive challenge to established businesses – but they can also become an immense value-added resource if engaged or acquired in due time, by the right company. But many international businesses may find it difficult to pinpoint where to begin or how to get the right ‘match’ for your particular needs when browsing the almost never-ending pool of start-ups. But perhaps we can help you find a way to weed out the information and find the resources you need.
AmCham Denmark, in cooperation with Copenhagen Capacity and Rainmaking Loft, is pleased to invite you to a startup event from the company perspective – featuring expert presentations on innovation, venture capital and acquisition, as well as provide an overview of the services available to help you connect with the right startup for your company. Startup / company matchmaking meetings will be pre-scheduled.
