Investor Pitching

We invite you to join the investor pitching sessions at HTH Pitch & Partner 2021, hosted by Science Park Graz and SFG!

What's it all about?
The goal of our investor pitching sessions is to connect innovative start-ups, scale-ups and researchers with relevant industry players and investors. In the framework of HTH Styria, we want to foster a European marketplace for pre-seed and seed investments in the health and biotech sector.

Together, we will drive your entrepreneurial success to the next level through potential investments, expertise, networking, advice and mentoring.

Each start-up should record a 3-minute pitch video and send it to us including a pitch deck. From 21 January 2021, all pitches will be visible on the HTH video channel. On the 28th January 2021, between 12:00 and 12:45, the best start-ups will have the golden opportunity to pitch at the main stage and to get expert feedback and advice from our international investors.
