Global Off-Grid Solar Finance Summit: The Climate, Development, and Investment Opportunity

GET.invest Virtual Matchmaking

GET.invest Matchmaking is part of the services offered by GET.invest to mobilise investments in renewable energy projects and businesses. The virtual Matchmaking will provide participants with an opportunity to connect with new investors to the sector, particularly climate-first investors, GOGLA partners, and key sector stakeholders, particularly working on investment and market development, manufacturers, and distributors that are seeking new partners and investors through a series of select personal meetings. 

The proven GET.invest Matchmaking format offers: 

  • An online platform, where participants can present themselves and their business, browse the profiles of other attendees, and request meetings with a single click.
  • A free mobile app (available on the App Store and Google Play) where participants can manage their meetings when- and wherever they want.
  • Virtual 1:1 meetings taking place directly on the Global Off-Grid Solar Finance Summit event platform.
  • Personal assistance from the GET.invest Matchmaking team before and during the event.

The GET.invest Matchmaking with bilateral virtual meetings will be held from Monday, December 6th at 9 am CET  to Friday 10th at 18:45 hrs CET. Each participant will be able to arrange virtual meetings per day throughout the week. Booking of these meetings will start on Monday, October 18th. During the Matchmaking period, each participant will be able to request meetings at any time of either 15, 30, 45 or 60 minutes. During the scheduling process, you will be notified whether the requested meeting time is outside the usual business hours (depending on the time zones of your meeting partners).
