Ever wondered how to take your start-up pitch from just okay to the wow-factor? What are the most common mistakes made by energy start-ups when building their pitchdeck and presenting their start-up? Which presentation methods can persuade investors and alike to hop onboard, especially when trying to bridge out to international markets?

We invite start-ups and young entrepreneurs from Kazakhstan, Russia, Turkey and Ukraine to an interactive workshop on developing their skills in presenting and representing their company to investors and in international markets. This workshop also offers participants an exciting opportunity to network, connect and engage in community feedback with energy and innovation stakeholders from the international energy sector! With the German Energy Agency's (dena) extensive network and expertise in the energy sector, dena supports the BMWi in training energy entrepreneurs and start-ups from the countries that are parties to the bilateral energy partnerships and dialogues with Germany.

The workshop will take place in the context of the 5th annual Start up Energy Transition Tech Festival. The SET Tech Festival brings together a global network of innovators shaping the future of energy. The one-day event allows participants to access the best start-ups and outstanding entrepreneurs in the field of energy solutions, in addition to innovation-driven corporates, investors, and public organizations leading the energy transition.

To get the most out of the session, participants will be asked to send their pitchdeck prior to the workshop to receive feedback. Participants will also be asked to prepare a 5-minute pitch to present at the workshop. Please note that space is limited.
