Nutrition Capital Network (NCN) is hosting its second European investor meeting on Monday, May 4, 2015, from 12:00 to 6:00 p.m. at Palexpo in Geneva, Switzerland, immediately prior to the Vitafoods Europe exhibition and conference, which runs on May 5 to 7, 2015.
NCN Europe II focuses primarily on science, ingredients and technology related to nutrition and health and wellness. Finished product companies in consumer health, supplements or functional 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. Between eight to 12 companies will present their business to an audience of 30 to 40 investors, with two to three hours set aside for one-on-one meetings scheduled on site after the presentations.
Since being founded in 2007, NCN has hosted 23 investor meetings in the United States and established a successful track record of matching growth companies and technology innovators with investors, acquirers and strategic partners: Fifty nine percent, or 190 out of 360, companies that presented at NCN investor meetings between 2007 and 2013 have raised capital or completed some sort of transaction.
NCN is accepting applications of companies who would like to present at the meeting. Selected companies will also be mentored by NCN principals and members of the NCN selection committee. Deadline for applications is March 31, 2015.
