Boosting innovative European small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs)

Invest Horizon is an EU programme designed to boost investment in innovative European SMEs by developing – in its own words – investment readiness and investor sensitisation.

If you're running a start-up business, you may be able to take advantage of Invest Horizon's services and activities:

A. Online Courses

Free online educational content and massive open online courses (MOOCs) on Investment Readiness, Mechanics of Investment and Emerging Sectors for Investors, etc. Topics include business, management, entrepreneurship, industry, technology, equity, investment, etc.

B. Investment Readiness Coaching

Academies designed to teach entrepreneurs how to maximise their fundraising potential. Coaching includes business support / presentation training for start-ups and early/growth-stage businesses.

C. Investment Forum Events

Events where selected companies pitch their business proposals to experienced investors free of charge.

Registered SMEs get personalised online feedback and scores for their investment readiness levels free of charge. This is just one way to access not only Invest Horizon's network of fellow entrepreneurs, but also investors and intermediaries alike!

D. Matchmaking

An online 'matchmaking' platform will shortly be available where investors and SMEs throughout Europe will be able to mix and mingle.
