Out of about 25 education companies, 5 were selected to practice their pitch today before a group of Angel investors. I was content not to have been selected at this stage, as I was mostly curious about the event and the networking. The Finnish Business Angel Network had an initial presentation before the pitches, mentioning that Finland probably has around 1000 business angel investors, of which about 400 are registered with the network.
I saw interesting potential for all presenting companies, and I really think Finland and Education Technology will not fail to prosper in the near future.
The event was arranged by Tekes, the Finnish Funding Agency for Innovation.
