futureSAX Investor Roadshow at 25th September 2018 in Berlin

Seventeen cutting-edge start-up and growth concepts from the innovative state of Saxony took the opportunity to introduce themselves to more than 20 investors and capital providers from all over Germany at the futureSAX Investors Roadshow. And we can tell already: the concepts of the Saxon founders could once again convince.

Deutsche Bank offered the right setting for the event with the Quartier Zukunft, which was once again chosen as the ideal location for the presentation of the innovators in the centre of Berlin due to its open concept and modern orientation. Many thanks to Deutsche Bank for providing this great venue.

After the greeting by futureSAX managing director Marina Heimann and the Milos Spiridonovic, leader of the Berlin startup team of the German bank, the investors could convince themselves of the exciting investment cases.

The founder teams had exactly three minutes time, in order to convince investors and backers of their idea and to arouse their interest for a later One-on One Meeting. Well prepared by the futureSAX pitch workshop, the pitching teams succeeded impressively.

In the three panels "Auto Motives & Mobility / Mechanical and Plant Engineering", "Life Science & Services" and "Information and Communication Technology", the founders from all over Saxony used this opportunity to promote their idea for financing.

"The futureSAX Investors Roadshow today offered a good mix of teams from a wide variety of fields with whom one could effectively exchange ideas alongside the well-organized panels.

After and during the pitches, the numerous investors were always keen to make contact with the idea providers from Saxony. From business angels to strategic venture capital companies, the investment side was also represented in a variety of ways. Tobias Schirmer, Partner at JOIN Capital, gave a short keynote to the auditorium about the expectations and experiences between founders and investors in order to give the participating start-ups and companies additional impulses.

"An important factor is the right matching of founders and investors. Both should ask themselves the question: Can the other in the best case meet my expectations at all?

After five hours of convincing pitches and intensive exchanges, the focus was on get-togethers and one-on-one meetings. After promising meetings and discussions as well as a good atmosphere, a positive conclusion can once again be drawn: the concepts of the Saxon innovators can also convince in the "big" Berlin. Now it's time for founders and investors to keep the ball rolling and turn networking into further talks.
