The 5th Thessaloniki Demo Day is coming on 12 September

OK!Thess invites startup teams to meet investors from Greece and South-East Europe by applying to participate in the next Thessaloniki Demo Day, taking place on 12 September 2019.

Following the highly successful Thessaloniki Demo Day held in Thessaloniki last March, OK!Thess is organizing its 5th event to continue helping investment-ready startups to raise early-stage capital from Venture Capital funds and angel investors.

The deadline for submission of applications is 25 August. You can apply here.

 

What is Thessaloniki Demo Day

Thessaloniki Demo Days are events organised by OK!Thess to promote networking between startups and investors of risk capital from Greece and abroad. 

The previous Demo Day was held in March 2019 at OK!Thess and was the largest ever gathering of Venture Capital funds and business angel networks in Thessaloniki with the sole purpose of holding private meetings with groups of the startup ecosystem. 24 investors participated in more than 130 meetings with 36 startups from Greece and Cyprus.

 

Who are the investors participating

The following active investors from Greece and Europe are participating:


Ιnvestors are looking for early-stage opportunities across the spectrum: from hardware to software technology and services for markets in health, transportation, energy, commerce, manufacturing, agriculture, foodtech, fintech, tourism.

 

Startup participation terms

The only prerequisite for the participation of a startup in the Thessaloniki Demo Day is to have reached a level of maturity and preparation sufficient for the founding team to present a complete investment proposal (the “ask”). 

Startups do not need to have gone through the incubation and acceleration program of OK!Thess. Applications are open to any startup from anywhere. It is also not obligatory for a team to present itself to investors for the first time.

 

Application process

Startup applications are submitted through this form. Applications are screened by OK!Thess and forwarded to investors for their review. Investors express their interest in meeting with specific startups and OK!Thess arranges the one-on-one meetings for September 12th. Startups are notified about their meeting schedule at least one week in advance.
