Investor programme for green business
The Tehnopol Startup Incubator is launching an investor readiness programme for businesses working with green technology
The development and introduction of green technologies is going to be a vital component of the green transition, and investors are becoming much more interested in it. A startup company wanting to attract funding needs a scalable business model, an investor package, a financing plan, a market-entry strategy, the perfect investor pitch deck, and much more. The training sessions and mentor support in the investor readiness programme will bring the first round of funding into touching distance for your green business.
We support Estonian companies working with green technology, we help them grow into sustainable businesses, attract investment, and find potential clients, and we can help open the doors to new markets.
We can give you:
- a four-part practical training programme ranging from legal to finance
- personal mentor support
- exclusive meetings with investors
- vital contacts for finding potential clients and entering markets
We expect you to bring:
- scalable business ideas using green technology
- MVPs or a finished product or service that is market-ready
The investor readiness programme for green startups is free for everyone, but the number of places is limited.
The training sessions will be held onsite in the Tehnopol Science and Business Park in Tallinn in May and June. You will be sent the exact dates and further information after registering.
