Eric Forest, Chairman and CEO of EnterNext, noted:“Last November we announced a series of measures to raise the visibility of our listed tech companies. Pitch Tech Days are one example. The aim is to give analysts and investors a better understanding of the often disruptive business models used by tech companies, and familiarize them with these businesses. The format breaks new ground: leaders focus on the technology side of the business, leaving aside the financial ratios that are generally presented to financial experts. We are convinced that our approach, based on building close ties between companies, investors and analysts, will resonate with our eco-system.”
