The European Photonics Venture Forum aims to market the photonics sector to a wider investor community and create channels to financing for high-potential photonics businesses. The Forum will ensure photonics becomes a pillar of local regional development plans, mirroring the European strategy and driving more support and funding to the sector. This important event for entrepreneurs and investors in the photonics sector matches investors with top 30 selected fast-growing photonics European companies with consecutive funding rounds as a result. EPVF is a great way for photonics companies to network with corporate investors, venture capitalists, and other entrepreneurs. It is also one of the semi-final competitions for the European Venture Contest Final – Europe’s largest tech investment matchmaking event for emerging companies. The top 8 companies of EPVF will get to present at EVC Final in December in Dusseldorf!
