December 15, 2016 - Pitching Day

Venture Growth Partners (VGP) in co-operation with Maastricht School of Management (MSM) Romania is organizing our next pitching competition day at the MSM premises blvd. Dacia 99, 3rd floor, Bucharest

The pitching contest is open to any team which will submit an original, disruptive and quickly scalable business opportunity, supported by market research, a basic business plan and ideally some prototyping by December 1st.

Shortlisted teams will be invited to pitch their idea in front of a VGP-led investor panel and the successful, most convincing teams may attract an angel equity investment. Shortlisted teams not based in Bucharest will have the opportunity to present to the panel via an online link.

Don’t miss the opportunity to bounce your business idea off of professional investors and kick-start your entrepreneurial dream or simply have the opportunity to hone your skills in business opportunity identification, analysis, and business casing.
