Science start-ups to pitch at European investment competition

9 May 2012

European science start-ups are being invited to enter a competition to pitch to international investors during Investing in Science 2012, which will take place in Dublin this July as part of the Euroscience Open Forum.

Investing in Science 2012 is being led by the National Digital Research Centre (NDRC), which is calling on science-based start-ups from around Europe to enter the competition.

The NDRC said the 12 hottest science start-ups with the strongest, commercially focused ideas will be picked to pitch to venture capitalists and angel investors in Dublin on 11 July at the Guinness Storehouse.

It’s also calling on investors who are interested in early-stage ventures from European universities and research institutions to register their interest.

Investing in Science will run as a one-day event during the Euroscience Open Forum that’s taking place from 11 to 15 July in Dublin. The event is being held in alliance with European Tech Tour, an independent, not-for-profit organisation that hones in on the development of emerging technology companies from Europe.
