A new era of venture capital

In 2019 only 0.9% of small businesses in the USA are funded by VCs — this means thousands if not millions (worldwide) of startups that deserve funding don’t get it. The industry needs to change and be more inclusive in the way capital backs enterprise, especially at the early stage. Some would say we need an angel investor revolution.


In this talk, we’re exploring how the venture capital industry could reshape itself, especially at the early stage and what financing instruments we can expect when we go beyond equity.

How can we explain this incredible growth? What about the different industry verticals? What are some notable success stories? What should we expect from the CEE region in the future?
