SETsquared companies pitch up a storm at Global Corporate Venturing Symposium
Peter Davies from Green Running pitches at the Global Corporate Venturing Symposium
Fourteen of SETsquared’s most exciting start up technology companies took part in this year’s Global Corporate Venturing (GVC) Symposium (24-25 May 2016).
The SETsquared enterprises pitched their work to more than 400 corporate venturing business leaders and investors at the prestigious event in London at the end of May.
Simon Bond, innovation director at SETsquared, said: “The annual GCV Symposium is the leading event for global corporate venturing professionals and SETsquared was delighted to put forward such brilliant talent and ideas from across the Partnership. It was a joy to be able to bring another round of exciting, high-growth potential technology companies to London to pitch for investment and demonstrate what makes their businesses stand out. Chances like these are invaluable for start-ups and it could result in having their technology picked up and adapted by a prominent business.”
Peter Claydon from ContinuumBridge, one of the pitching companies said: “Thank you for running the SETsquared pitching event at the Global Corporate Venturing Forum today. The timing was excellent for ContinuumBridge, as we are on the cusp of seeking some funding, and the event certainly exceeded our expectations and we got far more leads than we had expected.”
