Dear members of HEC Alumni Ventures,

This blog wants to recap recent activities occurring in the HEC Alumni Ventures community.

The number of entrepreneurs who have registered their start-up on HEC Alumni Ventures has accelerated since beginning of September, thanks to the interest raised by our pitching events.

There are now 265 entrepreneurs and 92 investors registered on HEC Alumni Ventures. And 32 start-ups are raising 12,5m€ in total.

This is a result of the increasing interest raised by HEC Alumni Ventures and its role played as an aggregator of projects and a single source of information for the HEC Alumni entrepreneurial community.

For the first time this month, on October 21st, HEC Alumni Ventures is organising a pitching event in Paris. It will take place in HEC Alumni offices , 9 avenue Franklin Roosevelt.

The 6 selected start-ups are:

1- Field In

2- Phage X

3- Nossa Fruits

4- Innov Order

5- Bloomizon.

All these start-ups are presented in the web site.

The event is now sold out. It is organised by Guillaume Claire and Penelope Liot. If you want to participate to the fund raising scheme and invest in these projects, you can do so at any time within the web site.

In London, on November 12th, we will organise our 5th UK pitching event. The official invitation will be soon sent out to all the UK HEC Alumni distribution list. This event is co-organised by HEC Alumni Ventures, X-UK and Centrale UK.

Don't forget that all members registered as Investors can contact all registered entrepreneurs and ask questions on the project or pledge and invest in these projects. There are Tax incentives in France and in the UK to invest in start-ups which makes this choice a real bargain.
