Opto­Net-Mit­glie­der­früh­stück • How to Pre­sent to Investors

STORIES, PEOPLE & Strategies

Opto­Net stron­gly belie­ves in the enor­mous inno­va­tion poten­tial of our com­pa­nies and the sci­en­tists and foun­ders of our uni­ver­si­ties and rese­arch insti­tu­ti­ons. Rai­sing the atten­tion of inter­na­tio­nal inves­tors and sta­ke­hol­ders – there’s room for impro­ve­ment in the Thu­rin­gian pho­to­nics region. While high­ligh­t­ing sci­en­ti­fic para­me­ters we some­ti­mes for­get to tell our sto­ries and talk about bene­fits and which socie­tal and users chal­len­ges our tech­no­logy and teams will solve.

Let’s dis­cuss:

  • What do inves­tors want to hear about?
  • Is there a dif­fe­rence to grant givers like the minis­tries, Hori­zon 2020 etc?
  • How do VC’s operate?
  • What are good pit­ching strategies?
  • How do we talk about our teams?

All mem­bers are warmly invited! 

As cul­ture and lan­guage make a dif­fe­rence and to include for­eign pho­to­nics experts, Phd’s, stu­dents and foun­ders – thank you for being fle­xi­ble to have this topic in Eng­lish language.

After years sup­por­ting star­tups and orga­niz­a­ti­ons like CERN – where he mana­ged a 23 insti­tu­tes, 19 coun­try IP net­work (GSI and DESY are mem­bers), Ian foun­ded Anchor In., a UK-based com­pany, tog­e­ther with his Ger­man wife Anke Loh­mann who is an expert in pho­to­nics and quan­tum tech­no­logy. The Anglo-Ame­ri­can per­spec­tive mixed with his pas­sion for high tech inno­va­tion make Ian a valu­able part­ner and spea­ker for us.
