2017 has been an eventful year and there are still exciting things to come in the last days. Cordinata has not yet had its one-year anniversary but we still feel as though we have gotten our feet more than wet. Since being posted in Berlin we have connected with many interesting, passionate and driven entrepreneurs, industries, investors and key figures within the German ecosystem. A resolution for next year will be to learn German though..
Since our start in April this year we have ambitiously pursued our goals and we have made progress in expanding to new and exciting areas. We have dived into the Agritech sector, visited the Agritechnica fair in Hannover and the FOODnext conference. We have also worked with Advanced Materials initiative INAM to learn more about deep tech innovations and will engage further within this field.
Our CEO, Nathalie Nebelius, has become Venture Partner with Cap A, a US VC fund investing heavily in the Nordic region. This is a very exciting new challenge and learning opportunity.
We continue to further explore great initiatives with a focus on circular economy and impact investments as we find it inspiring to meet people engaged in finding innovative solutions to make life more sustainable.
We are very much looking forward to cultivating more relationships as well as staying closely tied to existing clients. As we gaze forward to 2018 we are looking to explore even more of Berlin and embrace all the new challenges that lies ahead. We would also like to take this opportunity to thank all of our clients for a great experience so far and we look forward to continuing along the same lines in the year to come.
Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year,
Nathalie and Madeleine
