Berlin’s laboratory for creative entrepreneurship and investors - Between October and December 2019 | Apply from 23 September until 15 October 2019 (23 pm)!

You are looking for smart money and you are ready to pitch to private investors? However, you do not know how to approach equity financiers or how investors think? You are wondering what they expect from creatives? How you can convince them to come on board?
