Wir introduce ourselves.

The Reverse Elevator Pitch

The Venture Capital Forum is a unique forum for start-ups and investors in the heart of Germany and Europe. Originally founded in 2011 by the Wirtschaftsjunioren Frankfurt, we host the first Reverse Elevator Pitch in the scene. Pitches are usually given by startups looking for investors. In our format, we reverse the roles: European VCs share insights and valuable first-hand experience with interested startups and shapers of the ecosystem.
We network with Frankfurt.

In the center of Europe

At the heart of Europe

Frankfurt am Main is located in the centre of Europe. We network internationally within a radius of 2 hours by plane with the largest metropolises in the north, south, east and west.

Internationality is our DNA

We invite national and international investors to our Venture Capital Forums, who drive the start-up ecosystem of the Rhine-Main region forward internationally.
