Call for participants: ERF Entrepreneurship Award 2020
The Entrepreneurship workshop is a much-appreciated event that takes place during the ERF2020 conference on 3-5 March 2020. It provides the ability for small innovative companies to pitch their ideas for the next big thing in robotics to a panel of technology investment experts. As well as the chance to win a cash prize, entrants stand the chance to gain valuable skills in how to pitch an investment idea together with the potential to gain interest in their company from the investment community.
The objective of the workshop is to encourage the wider acceptance of entrepreneurship in robotics researchers by providing entrepreneurial coaching to several teams who themselves have ideas for developing robotics products or services.
Each selected participant will have their flight and accommodation (up to € 500) and ERF attendance and banquet fees paid for one person, and will furthermore receive feedback on their pitch and project from the screening committee and an offer of a further 3 * 1 hour of counselling from European level robotic entrepreneurship experts.
Interested participants must submit an application with the following format by 23:00 CET on 12th February 2020 to the following email address: [email protected]
Deadline: Application is to be send by 23:00 CET on 12th of February 2020 to the following email address: [email protected]
