Welcome to Aarhus Investor Summit - A unique platform that connects ambitious and knowledge-intensive startups with experienced investors

The Aarhus Investor Summit is organised by INCUBA with the aim of bringing startups, spinouts and investors together in a dynamic and inspiring setting. The Investor Summit is one of the highlights of our investor events and provides a unique opportunity to build a valuable network and explore potential investment opportunities.

As part of INCUBA’s community and investor network, you’re invited to the Aarhus Investor Summit, where you’ll experience a wide range of exciting pitches, panel discussions and networking opportunities. The summit brings together leading investors, VCs, CVCs, family offices and business angels looking for promising startups in the region.

At the Aarhus Investor Summit, capital-seeking startups and spinouts will have the opportunity to pitch on stage. You will have the opportunity to present your company to an attentive audience of investors and potential partners.

It’s your chance to share your vision, explain your business model, demonstrate your growth potential and reach the goal of your capital raising.

Our goal is to create a platform where startups can generate interest and open doors for future collaborations and funding opportunities.

In addition to pitch and feedback from experts, there will be ample opportunity to network with investors and other startups. The Aarhus Investor Summit is a unique opportunity to expand your network, gain insights into investment trends and learn from experienced professionals.

Many of our participating startups have obtained crucial funding and resources to push their company forward and realise their growth potential.

Bigger investment

We were very happy to be included as a pitch case and were very impressed with the whole event. After the pitch, multiple people guested our stand, one of which later led to a major investment. So a definite recommendation for the event from me.

"Major investment"

Nikolaj Zinner from quantum startup Kvantify talks about his experiences at the Aarhus Investor Summit, where he looks back on many great conversations with both interested investors and curious, friendly people.

According to him, the remarkable thing about the summit is the deep interest people show, and in 2022, Kvantify even got a major investment from the summit.

Pressure test and valuable feedback

It‘s been a great pleasure to pressure test our pitch in front of investors and life science experts and at the same time get valuable feedback on our case – all in an informal and laid-back atmosphere.

Big fan

I’m a big fan of the Aarhus Investor Summit and have attended two years in a row as both an exhibiting case and a pitch. Both years have been incredibly educational and it’s great to meet a lot of people from the business world. I think it’s a really good exercise to pitch and you get great feedback. As an exhibitor, you meet a lot of exciting people and expand your network, which is valuable.
