SIN Pitch event at PWC

September 19, 2018
6:30 pm - 9:30 pm

Dear Alumni,

We gladly invite you to attend the SIN Venture Pitch evening on Wednesday September 19, starting at 18.30hrs, kindly hosted at PWC in Amsterdam.

SIN: the Venture Investment Community for and by INSEAD alumni
SIN (Salamander Investment Network) is the venture investment fund owned and operated by INSEAD Alumni in the Netherlands. Three times per year we organize a Venture Pitch event for early-stage start-ups to pitch their business plans to our community and other interested alumni. When the SIN community deems the venture promising, we follow-up and an investment is made, either through the fund and/or by members privately. Among the shareholders there is a great sense of community.

On September 19 we will have 2 interesting Sport or Fashion startups that pitch their plans for us as well as an update from a portfolio company.

Fitmanager is an innovative online software platform for Fitness & Health entrepreneurs. The software has been developed and tested in collaboration with professionals who own either a Gym, Club or Studio such that it fits both in- and outdoor group training like Small Group, Fitness, Bootcamp, Yoga, Pilates, Personal Training, Crossfit, Dance, Boxing, Running and more!

Danish is the founder of an award-winning business model for a circular economy in the textile industry. VIGGA™ is a maternity and kids wear brand. The VIGGA™ product-service-system enables parents to lease organic maternity and childrenswear. VIGGA™ saves time, money and resources.

As one of SIN’s portfolio companies, Parkeagle will be providing an update on their latest developments to the SIN community. Parkeagle provides powerful smart parking sensor technologies to find parking spaces stress-free and predictable, wrapped up in an interface that’s easy to use and lightweight to manage.

After the pitches, there will be social drinks & bites (no dinner), and there will be opportunity to learn more about the SIN fund. SIN is still looking to expand the fund and Alumni can become a shareholder/investor for 830 euro per share (current price), see Google Doc for more info.

We hope to see many of you. For further information about SIN you can reach out to Daan Wilms van Kersbergen ([email protected]), Samuel Gerssen ([email protected]) or Pieter Kraaijeveld ([email protected]).
