Networking and to be networked is one of the most important tasks for companies and especially for Startups. With its more than 50 active members in present out of Familiy Offices, the Business Angels and enterprises, the vfn plays an important role in the mediation and exchange between investors, companies and innovative Startups. Because of its linking to an european-wide acting network out of e.g. leading Angelinvestors, Venture Capital and Private Equity-Fonds, the vfn is an indispensable contact for companies in a developing state. We are thankful for the impressions and contacts we had on the Investmentforum on 21.03.2018 in Heilbronn.
