The EFEA Investment Marketplace provides an arena of financial resources with financing options for businesses seeking to interact and engage with the investment and lending community.
Lenders, Angel-investors and investment resource partners will participate in our Funders Lounge, and then be available to meet with business owners in the Investment Marketplace - a simulated speed-dating type of event where initial conversations can help both the investors and the business owners determine if “a second date” is desired.
You will have 5 minutes to share your company's financial needs with each lender and get the financing you need! We will email you with additional details on how to prepare for that day.
