Hosted by Freischwimmer: the 7th VC Network Meeting of ISB Rhineland-Palatinate!
On 16 March 2018 we had a full house. As part of its 7th VC network meeting, the Investment and Economic Development Bank of Rheinland-Pfalz (ISB) invited innovative start-ups to Freischwimmer in Ludwigshafen. Five new portfolio enterprises were given the opportunity to present their business models in a pitch where the Lime Medical GmbH from Bad Kreuznach fascinated the guests with their novel finger therapy device.
Active support of start-ups is a matter of the heart to the ISB as the development bank of the state of Rhineland-Palatinate This is why the venture capital investors are very actively involved in the start-up community in Rhineland-Palatinate and are currently holding stakes in 140 young enterprises. On the one hand, financing by ISB requires a viable, innovative business model, and on the other hand, of course, the business must be located in Rhineland-Palatinate. The ISB is thus one of the key partners of the network when it comes to realizing unique business ideas.
Dr.-Ing. Hans-Heinrich Kleuker (director of Technische Werke Ludwigshafen AG) agrees that “Supporting networks in the world of start-ups is one of the most important tasks of our Freischwimmer start-up center. We are therefore extremely pleased to have been able to host so many trendsetting collaborations.”
We have nothing to add to this. Except maybe the feedback of the different start-ups that participated in the pitch because they were as impressed by the spirit of our unique Freischwimmer location as we ourselves have been for over a year now!
See you soon.
