European Investor Gate

The European Investor Gate project (EIG) launched in September 2013. Its aim is to bring results of European ICT research projects to the market and to make ICT researchers, small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) or first-time entrepreneurs investor ready and have the skills and contacts to finance the commercialisation of their projects. This will be done via awareness building sessions, training and one on one coaching. At the same time EIG will raise awareness and know-how among ICT investors. The project will connect these innovative early stage research projects and investors via investment pitching events and by providing a portal for start-ups and investors across all of Europe. One of the aims is to make strong progress towards closing the gap between public-sector research funding and private investments. For the next two years, EIG will present a series of European investment forums to enable researchers and founders, who receive prior coaching, to present their business ideas.

IBAN Association is partner of EIG Project.
