EIC Summer School 2024 – Session 2: Learn about investors and their investment terms

This year’s edition of the EIC Summer School focuses on a topic essential to innovation, namely access to finance and specifically on this session, learning about investors and their investment terms

The EIC Summer School is now officially back in business! On 5 and 12 July 2024, the EIC Community Programme, powered by EIC Business Acceleration Services, is organising a new edition of the EIC Summer School, focused on a topic essential to innovation, namely Access to Finance. Divided into two online sessions, the EIC Summer School will offer EIC Pathfinder, Transition and Accelerator beneficiaries the opportunity to secure their innovation or scaleup's financial future. This is an open call for you to learn how to bring investors to your lane!

Register now for the upcoming EIC Summer School that will take place online, on the mornings of Friday, 5 and 12 July 2024 from 09:00 to 13:00 CEST. Divided into two online sessions, the Summer School will offer you the opportunity to secure your innovation or startup's financial future by mastering how to approach VCs and boost your fundraising efforts.

Even though each training course is a standalone session with its own registration, we encourage you to attend both sessions. You will learn how to create an impressive pitch deck and understand valuation and term sheet criteria.

To guarantee a good learning and interactive experience we plan to limit the sessions to a maximum of 40 participants. Priority is given to the EIC beneficiaries who register to attend both sessions and on a first-come-first-served basis.

The selected beneficiaries will receive a confirmation via email by June 21st.

Register by June 11th for the second session on 12 July, using the link found on this page.

Who can apply?

All the EIC-backed innovators! EIC Awardees from the EIC Accelerator, EIC Transition and EIC Pathfinder funding schemes, Women TechEU awardees and Seal of Excellence holders (under Horizon Europe) can apply.
