Are you a foreign entrepreneur, a freelancer, or an investor? Or are you thinking of leaving your job to start a business? This is one possible way to test your idea.

Every quarter we invite about 20 people to an informal moderated meeting where we discuss business issues introduced by one or two experts and exchange valuable contacts and tips over a glass of wine. The admission is free.

At our next BEC business meeting, we’ll give you a chance to present your business plan (or just idea) to our mentors, business angels or experienced business people and get valuable feedback and advice.

The deadline for application has passed (23 August). You can still come to the meeting, and listen in the audience this time. Make a booking for this event (click on the big red button on the top of this page).

Four businesses will be selected for presentations (10 mins) and all applicants will be invited to join us and think of presenting next time.
