Angels and authorities. Pitching for your first funding.

Start-up companies can change the world for the better. But they may need investors to fund their activities. Copenhagen Science City is co-hosting this “Brew Your Own” event with BioPeople. Join us to learn why to pitch, how to pitch and what the investors are looking for, when you pitch.


Inspiration for start-ups. Inspiration to start up. Watch early stage start-ups performing their first pitch after a pitching workshop. Learn from the pitching mistakes of seasoned start-ups. Meet the angel investor and the institutional early stage investor and hear what they look for in a pitch. Join the Open Mike session, to get feedback on your own project or ask for collaboration and not least: Network with inventors, investors, entrepreneurs and employment seekers. The event is free of charge. 


Biopeople is a neutral network organization that works to facilitate matchmaking and collaboration in the Danish Life Science Industry.
Copenhagen Science City is an innovation district where University of Copenhagen, the University hospital Rigshospitalet, University College Copenhagen and seven start-up communities collaborate to create the best possible conditions for innovation intensive start-ups and scale-ups.
