About OktoberINVESTfest

Our annual investors conference OktoberINVESTfest aims to foster innovation and transatlantic investment. In order to achieve this goal, we introduce financiers to learn about selected unique, high-quality, American and German investment opportunities in the sectors of Information Technology and Life Sciences. We present both public and private opportunities. This energetic event is hosted by Invest in Bavaria, the investment promotion agency of Germany’s largest, most innovative state – Bavaria. It’s capital Munich, as rated by the European Commission, is Europe’s #1 tech hub! Likewise, Bavaria is a top-tier region in Europe for medical devices and biotech and #1 in Germany.

Our programs feature distinguished panelists and speakers, complimented by power networking during our Unconference Luncheon. Throughout the day some 40 top investment opportunities from the US and Germany will present their innovations and businesses in IT and Life Sciences to investors. U.S. and German investors and business leaders will share ideas on how to finance innovation and business expansion. Opportunities will be discussed during 1-on-1 meetings. The final highlight of the full-day event will be the Little Oktoberfest in New York City, where partners and participants solidify their new relationships over Bavarian beer and cuisine – with inspiring views of lower Manhattan from 40 floors above street level. We look forward to seeing you in 2017!
