European Photonics Venture Forum 2019


European Photonics Venture Forum

The 5th edition of Tech Tour’s European Photonics Venture Forum took place on 26-27th of June, organized in the framework of the LASER World of PHOTONICS. The purpose is to foster investment, partnership, licensing, M&As and export in the photonics sector.

30 companies who are looking for investment were selected from all applications received by a Selection Committee formed by industry experts. During the Venture Forum, selected start-ups in the photonics domain had the opportunity to pitch in front of international investors and Venture Capitalists. In addition, they profited from a special mentorship course and were able to set One To One meetings with all participants of the forum.
