Palma International Boat Show is host once again to the second edition of the Boat Show Investment Forum. This is an investment forum aimed at entrepreneurs or start-up projects (with fewer than two years) and companies undergoing a growth phase (with more than two years) related to the boating sector who are seeking private capital investment.

The Boat Show Investment Forum is organised by the IDI in conjunction with Keiretsu Forum, one of the largest private investor networks in the world.

The objective of this event is to evaluate the entrepreneurial projects and give them greater visibility whilst also boosting investments in the nautical sector, offering start-ups a space where they can present their project to a quality public and where opportunities may arise to promote their company.

The 2nd Boat Show Investment Forum will take place on Monday 30th April at 11 am in the conference room at Ports de Balears (Carrer del Moll, 17, First Floor, Palma).

We are looking for entrepreneurs and companies that meet the following criteria:
