Webinar: Investment Fireside Chat

About this event

Webinar narrative:

This event is organized in cooperation with the CEFA: https://www.club-economique-franco-allemand.org/

Especially for early-stage start-ups funding mostly comes from investors of their home market as proximity, cultural understanding and network are crucial. Depending on your start-up project and your industry, inviting investors from foreign target markets to the table is a smart move that should be wisely considered. Not only will they have a positive impact on your growth strategy and the development of your company but they also help open up your vision to international markets very early on. This is a huge value added to your start-up.

In this investment fireside chat the European Champions Alliance Co-Founder Andrea Vaugan will discuss with Ryan Lober, CEO of the French robotics company Fuzzy Logic and their investors Yvan-Michel Ehkirch and Benjamin Zerbib from the deep-tech early-stage VC fund Karista from France as well as Julian von Fischer from the Munich based industry-specialized seed-stage investor 42Cap on how this deal came together. Our guests will share why seeking funding in core target markets France and Germany has a positive impact on the development of Fuzzy Logic and what the investors will do to leverage their market knowledge and network to help the start-up scale on European markets.

  3. What are the experiences for all stakeholders in this deal? Why was it a good idea?
