The futureSAX-Investor Roadshow at the main incubator

Sixteen cutting-edge start-up and growth concepts from the innovation 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 so much is betrayed already now: the concepts of the Saxon founders convinced with their Pitches.

The appropriate setting for the event was provided by the Main Incubator, which not only provided the right location but also the technical expertise required for Commerzbank's activities as an investment company. Many thanks to the Main Incubator for providing this great venue.

Welcome & a keynote that inspires

After the welcome by futureSAX managing director Marina Heimann and host Christoph Osburg, investment manager of the Main Incubator, the investors could convince themselves of the exciting investment cases.

Before the teams claimed the stage for themselves, Andreas Thümmler, Managing Partner of ACXIT Capital Partners, inspired the teams with his keynote speech on current technology trends from the point of view of a venture capital investor.

"In Germany one has to think european because there is a huge internal market, good education, high incomes and democratic values. We must pool our forces in Europe, only together can we meet the challenges of the global world with China, Israel or the USA". Andreas Thümmler, Managing Partner Axcit Capital Partners

Convincing pitches

The founding teams had exactly three minutes to convince investors and financiers of their idea and arouse their interest for a later one-on-one meeting. Well prepared through the futureSAX pitch workshop, the teams impressively succeeded.

In two pitch sessions each from the Seed ("Technology" and "LifeScience") and Series A ("Information and Communication Technology" and "eCommerce & Mobility") phases, the founders from all over Saxony used this opportunity to promote their ideas for financing.

Afterwards: good discussions with the investors

After and during the pitches, the numerous investors repeatedly sought contact with the entrepreneurs from Saxony. From business angels to strategic venture capital companies, the investor side was also represented in a variety of ways.

Between the 30-minute pitch sessions with convincing pitches and intensive exchanges, the focus was on get-togethers and one-on-one meetings. After promising encounters 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 financial metropolis Frankfurt am Main. Now it's time for founders and investors to stay on the ball and turn networking into further talks.

"Great way to talk personally to investors and get direct feedback for pitch and business model."
Friedrich Seck, Gründer d25.io
