Odense Investor Summit – Robots meet Capital

Invest in Odense cases, Seed and Venture Capital

Robots meet Capital in Odense again!

On November 15th, 2017 investors, robotic companies, startups and people with an interest in the robotic environment will leave their mark on the City of Odense.

Odense Investor Summit – Robots meet Capital will gather 60 investors to be pitched to by 12 robotic companies. There are high expectations, as last year, Multi Tower Robot garnered 1 mio. Euros in seed investments after a successful pitch.

Helge Holm-Larsen, CEO at Syddansk Innovation is quoted: “For SDI it is most encouraging that events like Odense Investor Summit take place here in Odense. We are certain this event will serve as a catalyst for further growth of the unique robotics cluster in Odense, and we look forward to participating, both in the event per se and as a core contributor to an even stronger robotics cluster of the future”.

Odense Investor Summit is not exclusively for established investors and companies. The Summit also includes a Masterclass for 50 Business Angels looking at first time investments. Five startup companies will participate in the Odense Robotics Startup Competition. The winner among the five startups will get the chance to pitch for the investors at Odense Investor Summit.

In the bazar at the Summit a total of 24 robotic companies will present themselves to the investors – and 12 of them will be pitching for investments. Simultaneously, Business Angels Syddanmark will have 4 pitches from non-robotic companies.

But that’s not all! DIRA – the Danish Robot Network – has a roadshow coming to Odense at the beginning of the day. The DIRA Roadshow gives the DIRA members the chance to exhibit their technologies. The roadshow will be combined with the “Robot Boom” at Danish Technological Institute (DTI). Here DTI will open its doors to its robot and welfare technology facilities in Odense, so that all curious production companies, municipalities and other relevant players can come and take a look at the technologies for the near future.

500 people are expected to participate in the roadshow/ Robot Boom. And a total of 16 mio. Euros is expected to be present at Odense Investor Summit.

It all happens on November 15th 2017!  Sign up here
