Capital on Stage: in the spotlight CompanyMatch
Published on 23-09-2015
After a careful selection CompanyMatch got selected to join Capital on Stage. An interesting initiative of match making between Investors and Startups (early growth stage). The different angle however is that the international investor community now will pitch on stage themselves!
Besides that there are a lot of interesting activities organized during Capital on Stage. Check out the program. You will find CompanyMatch at the main conference which is hosted at Loyens & Loeff in Amsterdam.
Startups in the spotlight
CompanyMatch has been given the opportunity to pitch as well during ‘Startups in the Spotlight’. During 20 minutes companies will pitch their concept for 30 seconds. I love it! Less time really means better pitches. Startups tend to talk to much, believe me I know it… But hey, if you have a great solution you want to talk about it all day. For an investor however, who gets to see 100 concepts a day, you better keep it KISS proof (keep it stupid simple). Problem, solution, track. You really don’t need more than 30 seconds. We actually practiced with a 10 second pitch when we took part in the Startup Bootcamp program in San Francisco. If an investor thinks you are in his sweet spot, he or she will reach out and you’re on to take a deep dive.
