With the Investors’ Dinner @ Slush, BBN.net has in cooperation with EIT Digital and Germany Trade & Invest GTAI created a matchmaking event where selected European innovative, high-growth digital startups meet international VCs in an exclusive 3-course dinner format. In small groups, the startups will share a table with investors pitching their idea and business model. To ensure that the startups get the most out of this format and more than one chance to connect to the VCs, they switch seats after each course.

Participating startups should show first market traction, have a European focus and an investment need from € 1 – 10 M. They will get nominated by local partners, which have a reputation in the startup scene of the different regions. The final selection will be made by media:net berlinbrandenburg. Startups should be mainly acting in the field of digital media, enterprise software, web, mobile, tech, deep tech and games. At the dinner, one person per company will pitch and speed-date with international VCs from Germany, the Baltic Sea region, Scandinavian countries and beyond.

Startups pitching their ideas and establishing business contacts to Investors while enjoying a great dinner in a relaxed atmosphere. Sounds good, right?

Please note that every attendee to the dinner will receive a 20% discount off the Startup ticket price. (Only one person per company can attend the dinner. Slush ticket is not necessary for attending the dinner.)


What are the benefits for VCs?

They get to know CEOs from selected investment-ready European digital ventures in a conversational dining setting and engage with most promising digital startups, each with strong product sales in growing markets and proven business models.

It is a win for both, the startups and VCs.


We are looking forward to meeting you in Helsinki!
