DeFINE & CAST Online Investment Forum

Are you an investor interested in fashion-tech and sustainable tourism?

Join us for the DeFINE (Developing a Fashion-tech Innovation Network for Europe) and CAST (Creative Accelerators for Sustainable Tourism) Online Investment Forum to hear the pitches from the next generation of innovative fashion-tech and sustainable tourism startups on the day of the initially planned Global Finals of Bright-CBC (Creative Business Cup) in Copenhagen. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic we are now preparing an online forum that was originally planned to be held onsite.

20 selected startups will pitch their ventures in two parallel sessions. Their 3 mins presentations will be followed by 10 mins Q&A sessions to give you time for your feedback and to identify companies you might be interested to following-up with individually. CAST & DeFINE will facilitate these meetings and will ask for your allowance to share your contact details with all participating start-ups.

Please confirm your participation by answering to by 15 May 202
