Bask’Invest 2020 as a video conference

The 6th year of meetings between investors and startups in the south of Aquitaine will be held on Wednesday 1st July. This year it will be held as a pitch competition and a speed meeting by video conference.

Organised by ESTIA Entreprendre (=Enterprise), with EY (Ernst &Young), the Communauté Pays Basque, the Chamber of Commerce and Industry for Bayonne Pays Basque, Bask’Invest 2020 will be held virtually because of the restrictions related to Covid-19.

Initially intended to be held on the Izarbel site at Bidart in the form of individual meetings between innovative businesses and investors, round tables, encounters, networking, the Bask’Invest 2020 will only be offering a four-minute pitch competition by video and ten-minute interviews (speed meetings) between startups and investors. Nevertheless, some twenty regional and national investment funds will be present.

The three winners of the pitch competition will each receive an award of €1500 provided by partners of the event: Communauté Pays Basque, Airbus Development, GroupeEtchart

Note that ESTIA Entreprendre is offering short videos from the four 2019 winners (Solikend, Kometa, Docorga, Noostrim) about what winning the event has meant to them.
