Being the leading pan-European market infrastructure in Europe, and one of the largest in the world, Euronext connects European economies to global capital markets, to accelerate innovation and sustainable growth. It was created via the mergers of the Amsterdam, Paris, and Brussels stock exchanges in 2000. It later acquired the Portuguese stock exchange and the London International Financial Futures and Options Exchange (LIFFE) – which resulted in an expansion of its offerings. Now, Euronext operates exchanges in the cities of Paris, Amsterdam, Brussels, Lisbon, Dublin, Oslo, and Milan.
With close to 1,920 listed issuers and around €6.5 trillion in market capitalisation as of the end of September 2021, Euronext possesses an unmatched blue-chip franchise and a strong diverse domestic and international client base.

What’s in it for you?
18 EIC funded companies will be selected for the event to have the unique chance to learn more about the challenges and the step-by-step process of going public, guided by a team of advisors from Euronext. EIC companies will also have the chance to pitch their business cases and ideas to a jury of top-tier European later stage investors.
The event is open to all innovative approaches with a focus on 1) ICT/Technology, and 2) Life science/Biotech & Medtech.
What’s on the agenda?
The EIC & Euronext have set up an exceptional agenda for a day at Euronext Amsterdam, the financial heart of the Netherlands (Address: Beursplein 5, 1000 GD Amsterdam). The day will start with a welcome and introduction by Euronext, followed by a first-panel discussion, “Investigating the new pathways to the capital markets”.
In a first pitching session, 9 EIC funded companies will present their technologies from the ICT & tech sectors. Before lunch, we will learn how companies can “Navigate their future investor base when going public”. After the lunch break, the focus will be on Medtech & Life Sciences, when another 9 EIC funded companies pitch in front of the investor jury during a second pitching session.
After this pitching session, Investors will have the opportunity to meet the companies in private one-to-one meetings to dive a bit deeper with the company representatives. The day will close with a closing gong ceremony, and further networking activities.
Take note: 3 June 2022, from 8:30 AM to 18:30 PM (CET).
