2017 German Equity Forum: entrepreneurs meet investors

The German Equity Forum is the largest information and networking event for capital-seeking companies and investors.

Here, companies of all sizes and sectors report on their development and performance and present their current financial figures. The forum enables institutional investors and analysts as well as private equity and venture capital investors to meet listed and unlisted companies’ most important decision-makers, to expand their network and make investment decisions. The event has been organised by Deutsche Börse since 1996.
