10.1.2022 Investment panel coaching

Investment panel coaching for all growth-oriented businesses and business idea teams in the Jyväskylä area starts 10th January 2022!

A growth-oriented business idea almost always needs external financing in the initial stage.

Financers assess aspects such as:

  • the company’s business idea
  • the business plan and the team’s competence
  • the financial calculations and the need for financing.

In turn, the company must:

  • understand different financing options and the goals of different investors
  • be able to present a good and comprehensive investment pitch
  • be prepared to answer investors’ typical questions
  • maintain the company’s financing eligibility.


Setting sights on the Financing Panel!

After our investment panel coaching, you will have a better understanding of the implementation of a financing round and an opportunity to apply for the Financing Panel.

At the Startup Factory, we use the Financing Panel event as a tool for networking growth companies with financers and improving companies’ financing eligibility.

The Financing Panel is an opportunity for growth-oriented companies and business idea teams in need of financing to test their own financing eligibility. At the same time, the team receives valuable feedback and development suggestions regarding their business idea. In other words, the event is an excellent place for creating contacts with financers and investors. The Financing Panel is not an entertainment event in the style of Dragons’ Den, nor are investment decisions made there.

The Financing Panel is owned and operated by Venture Development Finland. The Start-Up Factory is a proud organizing partner in the event.
