TechQuartier

On May 27th, TechQuartier held the first ‘Investor Day’ of the year. Bringing together both German and international investors from VCs, Family Offices, accelerators and development banks along with fast-growing startups and scaleups, the event saw over 100 attendees gather together for a day filled with pitches, speeches and Q&A sessions.

For our third edition, we decided to concentrate on connecting the Rhein-Neckar-Triangle, focusing on forging stronger ties with key players from Baden-Württemberg, Hesse and Rhineland-Palatinate. Considering current polarisation across Europe and TQ’s function as an international hub and community builder, the event could not have been more timely.

After a keynote speech from entrepreneur and investor Björn von Siemens, divulging the ins and outs of founding and fund-raising, nine entrepreneurs presented their promising business models: first hearing pitches from doks-innovation, Covomo, Kantwert, Kumpan and eyeV GmbH, followed by SevDesk, Quantitec, Cloud Commodity Exchange GmbH and node.energy. The diverse young companies, from the fields of FinTech, GreenTech, E-Mobility and beyond, are seeking series A/B funding in the range of 200,000 to 10 million euros to further accelerate their growth.

We concluded the evening with drinks and a networking session, providing ample opportunity for 1on1s and follow-up questions. The event was sponsored by WIBank — Wirtschafts- und Infrastrukturbank Hessen, BM H — Beteiligungs-Managementgesellschaft Hessen mbH, FiDT Technologie- und Gründerzentrum Kassel, Investitions- und Strukturbank Rheinland-Pfalz (ISB), LEA Partners from Baden-Württemberg and Science Park Kassel, with the common goal of creating growth opportunities for companies in their regions.

Thank you to all the attendees — we look forward to continuing this series with you in the months to come.
