We are thrilled to announce the next intake of applications for its highly valued Investment Readiness Programme. This pioneering initiative aims to assist early-stage founders in the photonics and deep-tech sectors by providing guidance on accessing external finance.

Developed and delivered by experts in photonics investment and business development, the PhotonHub Europe Investment Readiness Programme offers a comprehensive step-by-step process to early-stage business leaders. Through valuable insights, information, introductions, and opportunities, this unique programme equips entrepreneurs with the knowledge and skills needed to maximize their business potential during the crucial early stages.

“Our goal with the Investment Readiness Programme is to demystify the funding journey and empower entrepreneurs in the deep tech sector,”

Anna Dymowska, COO at FundingBox

“We understand the challenges faced by early growth stage deep tech start-ups, particularly those dealing with innovative technologies and/or photonics. This programme is designed to provide them with the necessary tools and support to secure funding and drive business growth.”

The PhotonHub Europe Investment Readiness Programme covers a wide range of crucial topics. One of the key points of our programme is the investor days held so that our beneficiaries, once they are ready to pitch, can connect with investors. Participants will gain valuable insights into accessing equity and cascade funding, approaching venture capitalists, and avoiding common pitfalls. Moreover, the programme offers referrals to potential investors, providing participants with direct connections to funding opportunities.

Don’t miss out on this incredible opportunity to take your business to the next level and secure the necessary funding to drive growth and innovation.

The PhotonHub Europe Investment Readiness Programme accepts applications with a cut-off date every two months. Founders and entrepreneurs interested in participating are encouraged to apply early, as spaces are limited.
