GET.invest Virtual Matchmaking

GET.invest Matchmaking is part of the services offered by GET.invest to mobilise investments in renewable energy projects and businesses. It will provide participants with an opportunity to connect with potential business partners, public and private investors and policymakers a series of select personal meetings. As a SEFEA participant, you are automatically registered for the GET.invest Matchmaking.

The proven GET.invest Matchmaking format offers: 

  • An online platform, where participants can present themselves and their business, browse the profiles of other attendees, and request meetings with a single click.
  • A free mobile app (available on the App Store and Google Play) where participants can manage their meetings when- and wherever they want.
  • Virtual 1:1 meetings taking place directly on the SEFEA event platform.
  • Personal assistance from the GET.invest Matchmaking team before and during the event.

The GET.invest Matchmaking with bilateral virtual meetings will be held from 09:00 EAT (08:00 CEST) on Thu, 15th June to 17:00 EAT (16:00 CEST) on Fri, 30th June. Therefore it will be possible to book meetings before, during and after the SEFEA event (22th to 24th June). During the Matchmaking time period each participant will be able to request meetings at any time of either 15, 30, 45 or 60 minutes. During the scheduling process, you will be notified whether the requested meeting time is outside the usual business hours (depending of the time zones of your meeting partners).
