EIE is a technology investor showcase featuring highly promising companies from the life sciences, ICT and energy sectors seeking funding from seed to A round. You’ll have been to such events before and will continue to travel the world attending more.
However, you won’t find another EIE.
Is it the quality of companies? Perhaps.
Is it the impressive line-up of engaging International speakers? Maybe.
