Anzu Partners Sponsors First U.S. High Tech Venture Days (HTVD)

America and Europe’s finest hard tech startups to pitch at HTVD in Washington, D.C.

Originally established in 2013 in Dresden, Germany, HTVD is a matching program for startups, venture capital investors, and corporates, focusing purely on IP-based, B2B, industrial technologies and hardware. The event brings together about 100 attendees from the European and American industrial technology and hardware ecosystem, with the goal to support startups that work on real, physical products to solve real world problems by connecting them with investors and industry partners.

Anzu Partners is sponsoring HTVD this year, alongside NOVA, Polisinelli, Sands Capital, and Technlogiegründerfonds Sachsen (TGFS), and all will be present during the event to hear pitches and connect with startups.
