Applications open for one-to-one funding clinics at Oiltech’s Entrepreneurs’ Advisory Workshop
Date: 30 November 2016
The Oiltech Investment Network, managed by OTM Consulting, is inviting applications for its one-to-one clinics at the Entrepreneurs’ Advisory Workshop, being held in association with Reed Exhibitions at Oceanology International North America on 14 February 2017. The event aims to connect innovative technology providers with access to funding opportunities in the oil & gas sector and provide an opportunity to network with industry experts.
Entrepreneurs seeking second stage partner funding, greater than US$500k and with field trial ready technologies are invited to apply for a one-to-one clinic with Oiltech’s members (private equity technology investors). Held during the afternoon of 14 February, the individual clinics will provide advice on business plans, market access, strategies and how to gain funding. There will also be opportunities to network with service providers (intellectual property attorneys/finance advisors/accountants), other entrepreneurs and key advisors within the E&P (Exploration & Production) technology sector.
“Oiltech’s clinics provide a rare opportunity for entrepreneurs to interact with the end users of their technology, as well as the venture arms of the major oil operating companies and venture capital funds,” says Mike Baker, Head of Networks Practice, OTM Consulting. Current Oiltech members include BP Technology Ventures, Chevron Technology Ventures, ConocoPhillips Technology Ventures, GE Ventures, Investinor AS, Lime Rock Partners, National Oilwell Varco, Repsol Energy Ventures, Saudi Aramco Energy Ventures and Viking Venture.
The morning seminar program is open to all and features guest speakers from Oiltech members, who will highlight global technology needs; key-note presentations describing alternative routes to funding; as well as technology funding success stories and the opportunity to meet the entrepreneurs behind them.
