ENRICH in the USA Ecosystem Showcase series
ENRICH in the USA is proud to present the U.S. Ecosystem Showcase series featuring ENRICH Soft Landing Centers and Hubs. These virtual half-day industry-focused events will consist of reverse pitches by three US Ecosystems followed by individual meetings.
Each U.S. Ecosystem will be represented by industry and university experts, seed investors, and city/state representatives to give an overview of the market potential, their infrastructure, and the investment funds available for European deep-tech high-growth Start-ups and Scale-ups. Selected entrepreneurs (by each U.S. ecosystem) will then have the opportunity for one-on-one meetings to pitch and receive feedback from the ecosystem experts and investors. Each U.S. ecosystem will award €500 to the venture that has the best overall chance of success in their region.
