Nutrition Capital Network (NCN) is again partnering health and nutrition investors with idea makers to further the growth and innovation in the industry.
Alongside Vitafoods Europe, NCN is hosting its third annual European investor meeting in Geneva in May 2016. NCN Europe III is a professional investor meeting that connects qualified investors with European and global growth companies in health, wellness and nutrition. The meeting will be on Monday, May 9, 2016 from 11:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. at Palexpo the day before the Vitafoods Europe exhibition and conference starts.
Between 10 to 14 companies seeking capital and partnerships will present their businesses to an audience of 40 to 50 investors. After the presentations, companies will have an opportunity to meet one-on-one with investors, scheduled on site. An informal networking cocktail reception will be held immediately following the meeting.
NCN Europe III focuses primarily on science, ingredients and technology related to nutrition and health and wellness. Finished product companies in consumer health, supplements, and natural and organic foods will also be considered as presenters. Presenting companies will be seeking investment, acquisition, or corporate partnerships for technology development, commercialization, clinical trials, distribution or licensing. Successful applicants will be mentored by NCN Principals and members of the NCN Selection Committee.
The next day, May 10, the Vitafoods Venture Den will showcase three companies selected from NCN’s presenting companies as they compete in front of three judges for an array of valuable prizes. The Vitafoods Venture Den is an exciting, fast-paced business pitch contest set on the Vitafoods Centre Stage from 4 to 5 p.m.
