EX VENTURE- Finding the Perfect Clean Tech Investors

Julien Uhlig Hosting the EX Venture Night

The votes are in! Manouv, MFC, and Sono Motors are the Winners of the first EX Venture night.

The platform makes it easier than ever to reach the right investors from the comfort of their home or office. There is no more need to be in Silicon Valley or any other high-cost financial capital.

EX VENTURE is Disrupting the Clean Technology Capital Market

Initially, 30 companies were shortlisted and introduced to a global audience of investors in a 16 min program. Julien Uhlig, the host, took it upon himself to do 30 company pitches in record time. “It is all about condensing the message down to its absolute essence!” When asked about how I can sum up a deep technology development in a few simple sentences, says Julien. You have to ask yourself! Why should anyone care? It is not that difficult! Says Julien, who has been a successful fundraiser and startup entrepreneur for over a decade. In deep technology, especially the founders with a strong tech background are not trained in communication.

Pitching is All About Inspiring People with a Different Background

Pitching is all about inspiring people with a different background and skill set to support your vision. Engineers are highly specialized, even after working in deep tech for a decade, it is merely impossible to have the same detailed understanding of this specific technology development. If you are in finance, you have to be a generalist on top of everything else.

The Team of EX is Working on Deep Tech German Government Programs

The Team of EX Venture works on an international deep tech development cluster funded by the German Ministry of Economics, which includes leading universities and tech companies worldwide. Developments in Waste Treatment, Energy Transition, and Transportation generally have a certain level of complexity that needs longer to be understood than let’s say, a lifestyle app. That is how EX Venture Night was born. The Platform is giving clean technology founders a highly targeted contact to tech investors, potential partners, and distributors.

EX Venture is the Most Effective Way to Reach a Broad Investor and Partner Network

My experience participating in pitch events in Silicon Valley showed they can be a little frustrating, says Julien. For example travelling all the way and pitching to Andreesen Horowitz, for them to simply tell you after the pitch that they don’t invest in hardware. While everyone agrees that many of humanities challenges will not be solved by an app alone. Bringing Clean Technology to global markets is very capital intensive and takes a lot of time. Most Venture Capitalists are looking in 5-year windows to make an exit.

Clean Technology Developments are Capital and Time-Intensive

In Energy Transition Technologies, the horizon for an exit can easily be a decade. So why waste time pitching to investors who will never invest in your startup. If we got a good introduction for a coffee with a leading VC in Palo Alto and I was in Manila, I would immediately be on an airplane. I would spend money and time for the opportunity to get my foot in the door. It is the nature of an investor to network; a large part of their job is to find co-investors, so that is what they do. One of them willing to share their network with a startup founder can make a difference in your business’s future.
