The Sum-Up of #EBANCork!

The Sum-Up of #EBANCork!

On behalf of EBANCorkBIC and InvestEU, we would like to thank all of our wonderful #EBANCork attendees as well as all our event partners and sponsors. Thanks to all of you, the EBAN Cork Annual Congress, the biggest angel gathering in Europe, became a place to reconnect, reimagine, reinvest for investors and entrepreneurs alike.

Key Takeaways from the EBAN Cork Annual Congress:

Reconnect: The international angel community came together after 2 long years, with 350+ participants from across Europe and beyond in attendance. There were investors, startups, government officials, EU policymakers, and a slew of other stakeholders from the innovation and investment ecosystem present. The EBAN Congress provided attendees with the opportunity to reconnect with old friends or make new ones.

Reimagine: We discussed investment with a fresh perspective; in these unpredictable times, entrepreneurs and investors must think and act differently. We considered longer-term views, trends that we believe will persist, and what angels can do to promote positive change and growth in the current challenging macroeconomic situation.

Reinvest: We urge investors to intensify their efforts to promote entrepreneurship, innovation, and social and economic well-being. This is the time for both early and later stage investors to rise to the occasion and put their resources, networks, and skills to work for the startup and innovation ecosystem. We also encourage public stakeholders to utilise the startup and early-stage investment communities, forming win-win partnerships that accelerate progress and add value for the society and the environment.

And the Next Destination of the EBAN Congress is…

Last but certainly not least, we are overjoyed to announce that the next destination of our Annual Congress is Athens! Enterprise Greece and EBAN will co-host the Congress on 24-26 April 2023 alongside HeBAN as an official partner. If you are interested in meeting hundreds of early stage investors from all over the world (and we know you are), pre-register to secure your spot!

We look forward to seeing you next year in Athens for another awesome event!
