Come together 2021 “Wine & Cheese”
On March 5, 2021, we celebrated our annual “Come together” in the the unique “Wine & Cheese” format – and for the first time in virtual form. Despite the circumstances, the online event was a great success.
For the “Come together” gives our portfolio startups the stage to introduce themselves to the entire EquityPitcher network and to connect with each other. This is where our founders, advisors, investors and members of the EquityPitcher family meet.
You can get further insights in the video below, where we have summarized all the highlights for you:
Like in every «Come together» Hermann & Sascha opened the event and gave insights into the past year, the current status as well as the outlook for the coming year with EquityPitcher.
In the Portfolio Showcase Andrea & Lukas presented our portfolio startups Navus, Cormo, iLocator, Xatena, AirConsole, YukkaLAB and Opinary and their highlights from 2020 as well as the development for the coming year. For the Ask & Needs of the startups, the entire EquityPitcher network was activated on this occasion.
In an interesting Q&A session, the founders of the startups (Beelinguapp, Guuru, vestr, ROOMZ & viselio) that raised a funding round in 2020 gave us an insight into their industries and activities.
FDP National Councilor Andri Silberschmidt provided exciting entertainment with his keynote speech on the topic of "Political Agenda for the Startup Ecosystem". Among other things, Andri gave an insight into where there is currently potential for improvement and what concrete proposals for solutions look like that are being discussed in the parliament.
The panelists Dr. Torben Antretter (RightNow,), Fredrik Isler (ANYbotics.) and Philipp S. F. Wustrow (OnlineDoctor) shared with us their experiences on "growth funding during COVID-19."
Despite receiving great feedback for the event, we would be very happy to have the "Come together" 2022 physically again!
