The European Angel Investment Summit 2022 (EAIS) is an annual conference where early-stage investors, entrepreneurs and change-makers get together to fuel Europe’s growth.

The EAIS, organized by the European Business Angels Network (EBAN), allowed participants a glimpse into the future, a chance to influence the course of tomorrow and was a unique opportunity to connect meaningfully with other international colleagues that enable innovations to come to life. This year, the event took place in Brussels, Belgium, on October 11 and 12.

The 2022 edition of the Summit included topics that went from how startups and investors can leverage science to build global companies, to what angel investors can do to foster more interconnected and inclusive innovation communities.
