Startup-iltapäivä

Startup-iltapäivä

Startup-yritykset kohtaavat monimuotoisia kasvun haasteita. Otollisten markkinamahdollisuuksien aikaikkuna on usein rajallinen suhteessa käytettäviin resursseihin. Varhaisen vaiheen yrityksille bisnesenkelit toimivat kanavana hankkia lisää resursseja niin enkelisijoitusten kuin osaamismuotoisen hikipääoman muodossa.

Tule kuulemaan kuinka bisnesenkelit ja yrityksen hallitus voi auttaa kasvuyrityksiä. Lauri Salovaara kertoo kuinka miljönääriksi 500:ssa päivässä –projektissaan tämä on näyttäytynyt.

Aika: 23.11.2017 klo 15.30-18.30
Paikka: Business Kitchen, Tellus Innovation Arena, Oulun yliopisto, Erkki Koiso-Kanttilan katu 1, 90570 Oulu
