Weeks of preparation and only 6 minutes on stage. That is how capital-seeking companies at Odense Investor Summit aim to open dialogue with relevant investors. 

Investors and companies on a mission

Odense Investor Summit – Cannabis & Life Science bridges capital-seeking companies with investors, and gather the ecosystems of cannabis and life science industries. On stage will be interesting investor cases as well as reflections and learning about investing in the industries in the volatile market of today.

The Odense Investor Summit – Cannabis & Life Science will take place the 13th of October 2022 in the city of Odense, Denmark.

For me, the pitches on stage are like tasters that indicate what the people in the company are like, which fin extremely interesting. Therefore, I have participated in Odense Investor Summit several times, and I will be there next Thursday once again

The relaxed vibe at the summits allows me to talk to the relevant companies in a very informal way before deciding if I should give them my card and suggest a more serious dialogue, and through the years I have been in serious dialogue with companies I’ve met at Odense Investor Summit

Cannabis & Life Science – a new format

This year 8 capital-seeking companies pitch on stage, and more will be represented at the event. Focus has expanded, so the investors will see both cannabis-related and more traditional life science companies represented.

According to Christian Carlsen, Managing Partner at VOLVÉR.VC, there is a wide overlap between the two industries.


Years ago, the focal point of the cannabis industry was the producers. Over the past few years, the focus has shifted towards patients, as in the established pharma industry. For investors to navigate the cannabis industry many of the skills needed, are the same as in the established life science industry.

When I attend a pitch for a start-up, I look at the founders’ ability to easily explain the business plan, the team’s insight, and experience in the industry or with the technology, and whether they have compelling energy and hunger to build a scalable company

Both investor Steen Westh Nielsen from Inn-Westh ApS, and others, has signed up for Odense Investor Summit – cannabis and life science before, and with great success for both investors and companies.

At the last Odense Investor Summit focused on the cannabis industry, 8 out of 10 pitching companies started up serious dialogues with 3 or more investors after the summits.

A united city behind the succesfull cannabis & life science ecosystem

What is it that makes Odense so special in relation to medical cannabis & life science? The main reason is the ecosystem drawn from two industries; a strong tradition in greenhouse-based horticulture and one of the world’s most advanced pharmaceutical industries. Take a deep dive into the ecosystem in the video.
