Entrepreneurs often underestimate the amount of capital needed and end up raising too little money. They also underestimate the time needed to raise and close the funding. This is where InvestHorizon comes in, an Accelerator focusing on supporting deep tech entrepreneurs and their current (seed) investors to raise ambitious Series A investment.
What to expect from InvestHorizon?
InvestHorizon champions 500 selected high-tech entrepreneurs to do much better and to raise an ambitious Series A investment round together with their supporting investors through an individual program customized to the investment-readiness needs and challenges of each company. The companies are selected through repeating calls for applications from SMEs every 6 months till the middle of 2021.
InvestHorizon is a programme financed by the European Commission, in association with Eureka, to facilitate Series A funding for selected deep tech companies boosting their investment readiness and investor relations.
