The American Chamber of Commerce (AMCHAM) in Luxembourg's Entrepreneur Committee has announced that it is organising its inaugural event on Thursday 31 March 2020 at EY in Luxembourg-Kirchberg, from 18:30 to 20:45.
This event, entitled "Show Me the Money!", aims to provide information about available funding for SMEs and connect SMEs with organisations that provide funding. An audience of 50 to 70 people is expected. Four businesses that have already secured funding to support their growth and / or expansion will be in the spotlight on this occasion.
The event will be organised in two parts: the four presentations, followed by 40 minutes of "speed-dating" where SMEs from the audience can meet with associations and organisations that are potential partners or sources of funding. The potential benefits of participating in this event include increased exposure for organisations and contact with their target market(s).
