Deutsches Eigenkapitalforum (EKF) 2023 healthcare

Let us introduce you

The Deutsches Eigenkapitalforum (EKF) is one of the largest investor conferences in Europe, connecting European small and mid-caps, spanning several different sectors with an audience of global investors. We are proud to have been one of the event’s main sponsors since 2012.

We have written profiles on 26 companies that will be at EKF 2023 between 27 and 29 November, representing innovative businesses from across the consumer, financials, healthcare, industrials and technology sectors.

Each has a unique story to tell – of energy transition, of creating new medicines, of developing new technologies and much more.

And each has a story to tell of generating value.

If you would like to meet any of the 26 companies Edison is hosting at EKF, please contact us or register directly for Deutsches Eigenkapitalforum.
