July, 17 2018 STIFT and bm|t host successful Investor Days Thüringen

Investor Days Thürin­gen is the most impor­tant annual event bring­ing aspir­ing start-up and growth stage com­pa­nies together with investors in the fed­eral state of Thürin­gen. The event is co-orga­nized by the Stiftung für Tech­nolo­gie, Inno­va­tion und Forschung (STIFT) and bm|t beteili­gungs­man­ge­ment Thürin­gen (bm|t), the largest ven­ture cap­i­tal and pri­vate equity investor focused on invest­ments in the free state of Thürin­gen. This year´s event attracted total atten­dance of 400 and fea­tured over 50 com­pany pitches and pre­sen­ta­tions and an addi­tional 30 com­pa­nies that pre­sented their sto­ries in an inno­va­tion arena. Investor Days Thürin­gen has grown in impor­tance for pri­vate investors who have started to rec­og­nize the com­pelling, under-the radar invest­ment oppor­tu­ni­ties in Thürin­gen. Kevin Reeder, CEO of bm|t stated of this year´s event that “we are happy to have smashed the pre­vi­ous record for investor atten­dance and see a clear trend towards more investors putting Thürin­gen on their maps.” Reeder con­tin­ued, “fayteq´s sale to a social media giant from Sil­i­con Val­ley and InflaRx´s Nas­daq IPO have clearly done won­ders for attract­ing investors atten­tion to the green heart of Ger­many.” Past events have led directly to sig­nif­i­cant invest­ments for young inno­v­a­tive com­pa­nies. Stephan Beier, Invest­ment Man­ager at bm|t, stated “over the past years we have wit­nessed an ever increas­ing amount of invested cap­i­tal being directly tied to this event.” He elab­o­rated, “we, and the guests we already received feed­back from, were very impressed by the poise of the pre­sen­ters and the high level of cor­po­rate sub­stance on dis­play at this year´s event.” The date for Investor Days Thürin­gen will be set in the com­ing months and the STIFT and bm‑t will be pub­lish­ing the save-the-date notice on rel­e­vant media chan­nels.
