Pass the Mic - Financing for German Startups: Traditional & Alternative Options - A German Accelerator Webinar

About this Event

As many German startups across industries are faced with financial burdens caused by COVID-19, financial resources providing longer-term stability and immediate cash are becoming increasingly important. A June survey in Germany’s IT sector has shown that 47% of those startups fear bankruptcy with a runway lasting only 3-4 months*. During this webinar, Alex von Frankenberg (High-Tech Gründerfonds), Angela Kerek (Morrison & Foerster), and Christian Janson Euterneck (NeueCapital Partners & #GAmentor)will address the current challenges startups face and provide an overview of public and private financial solutions in Germany. We will also explore the support mechanisms to help startups navigate the COVID-19 environment from an investment perspective.
