ACTia’s Virtual Clean Tech Matchmaking is an exclusive and curated service that matches clean technology ventures to a global network of investors, strategic partners, buyers and funders.
Combining our proven deal flow model, with best practices in online matchmaking, ACTia has developed a process that is efficient for participants, delivers higher quality matches, and engages a more diverse and international mix of both ventures and investors.
The event will take place as a series of online video pitches followed by curated meetings between clean tech ventures and investors/strategics.
This style of event gives ventures a great opportunity to put their quick pitch in action and we were pleased with the number of follow-up meetings that came out of these quick discussions
Great event. It got my startup in front of the right people in large multinationals that I never could have connected to on my own.
It was a great first event for us, and helped to expose us to a number of potential partners.
It was excellent.
Great event and we will be moving forward into discussion with 2 of the ventures.
A great way to have targeted networking.
Good opportunity to get a quick fix on priorities of strategic investors, non-dilutive/grant programs and others. It is also a good opportunity to practice and hone your pitch with instant feedback.
The format of the event was a dynamic way to connect with a number of companies in a short amount of time.
Well run did what it was expected to do and good participants both sides. Great to have networking with refreshments in the same spot.
A very efficient process with enough conversation time to understand the business needs and decide if a follow up meeting is required. Love the format and energy from everyone!
It was fantastic!
