This was our first pitch to a VC / PE group, and whilst the pitch wasn't successful, we were reasonably impressed with Inventages.
Our two key contacts, Serge Salager and Wolfgang Reichenberger, were really helpful at identifying gaps in our pitch and tightening up our story.
At the meeting in Geneva, we were impressed by the marketing savvy of Bogdan von Ruchmann, and we found Oxana polite and incisive.
Less sure about the big boss, Gunnar, who seemed pretty disinterested and distracted, and appears to hold most of the sway.
But overall, a decent group, with strong beverage experience and marketing nous, who turned what could've been just a big time-drain into a useful learning experience.
