This year, the Investors' Café is back at the European Committee of the Regions' premises with information stands and networking opportunities on advisory services on EU financial instruments, European Union SME-support and support to junior enterprises, plus dedicated workshops on entrepreneurship, investment and EU advisory support.
Partners of the Investors' Café 2016 include the European Investment Bank (Jaspers, Fi-Compass), the European Association of Public Banks, The European Commission Executive Agency for SMEs (Enterprise Europe Network, Horizon 2020 programs, LIFE and EMFF), Eurochambres, as well as entrepreneurs' associations such as Entreps, EURADA, JA Europe and JADE, and the Committee of the Regions' EER initiative.
To enhance interaction and connectivity during the event, the International Board of Entreps (Business People & Entrepreneurs) provides a TV platform and an "App" to produce and broadcast live-streamed videos via YouTube. By signing in to the ByLeaders App, representatives of regions and cities can pitch their best projects and ideas to the entire community.
The App can also be used to geolocate potential partners and interested parties to discuss projects during the EWRC, and even after the event.
Find out more and register to INV workshops at www.regions-and-cities.europa.eu by Friday 30 September (please note that no on-site registration will be possible this year).
