Softlanding - EBAN Cork Annual Congress

Cork, Ireland

The best startups we could find in the MENA region will join Europe’s largest and most recognised international business angel event in Cork on May 18-19, 2022.

EBAN has a long track record of supporting cross border investment so it appeared natural to partner with them, so they ensure the investment readiness component for THE NEXT SOCIETY start-ups. The principle is to allow entrepreneurs from the MENA region to expand to Europe successfully and get further investments from European angels.

Selected startups will therefore join hundreds of investors and corporates attending the EBAN Congress 2022. They will make connections, learn from experts and pitch in front of the world’s best angel investors!

EBAN Cork Annual Congress will bring also together more than 300 Business Leaders; Early Stage Investors; Business Angels; VCs; Entrepreneurs; Accelerators; Seed Funds and Startups in Cork, Ireland.

  • Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) – A Priority for Angels & Funding Routes
  • Raising Finance on a Global Scale – Power of Accelerators as an Investment vehicle
