Venture Academy
(Lord Jenkins Room, Ground Floor)

On the 3rd of March morning, as an outreach of the Galileo Application Days and in coordination with the GSA, a special GNSS Venture Academy will be organized with the ambition to help SMEs involved in the development of new GNSS applications at fine tuning their business plan.

The critical issues to be addressed when developing SATNAV business applications will be highlighted and face to face meetings organized between SMEs and high value added experts in a large range of domains: Intellectual property rights, innovation management, fund raising, liability, standardization, marketing in LBS, marketing in road user charging services, Living Labs, incubators, EGNOS service providers .

The SMEs involved in FP7 funded projects are invited in priority to this Academy. Since the number of face to face meetings to be organized with the experts are limited, additional SMEs will be welcome on a first-come, first-served basis.

No registration fees are required.

To register please contact: Florence Ghiron, Capital High Tech, fghiron@chtech.fr
