Investing for Climate Impact: PwC and Wolves Summit Host Climate Tech Pitching Track, Launch Call for CEE Climate Tech Report Nominees

Wroclaw, Poland. 24 May 2022. Earlier this month, Wolves Summit and PwC Central and Eastern Europe (CEE) announced their partnership with the goal of matching global impact investors with climate tech start-ups in the CEE region. As part of that partnership, they organised on 24 May at the Wolves Summit in Wroclaw a Climate Tech Pitching Track as part of The Great Pitch Contest, held a panel discussion on the state of climate tech investment, and announced plans to produce a CEE edition of the PwC Net Zero Future 50 report. Climate tech start-ups across the CEE region are invited to submit nominations for possible inclusion in the report by 3 July 2022.

Investing in the Face of Crisis

Contrary to popular belief, the Chinese words for “crisis” and “opportunity” are, in fact, not the same. But as an anecdote, it has survived the test of time because it touches on something we all intuitively know to be true: that crisis begets change and change often represents an opportunity. 

Central Eastern Europe is (still) ripe for fruitful investments from PE, VCs

Fundraising and investment activity in Central Eastern Europe (CEE) continues to rise, as do the number of start-ups and unicorns. In this piece, we combine insights gleaned from speaking to investors at three very different firms: Multiple Capital (Fund of funds), Uniqa Ventures (Uniqa Insurance’s VC arm), and Wille Finance (Family office). These insights help paint a clearer picture of the advantages and benefits of investing in CEE start-ups and businesses, including the region’s large number of highly-skilled developers; its passionate and circumspect founders; low starting valuations; and exciting opportunities for high impact at local levels.

Wolves Summit launches new event format to connect global LPs with fund managers, and scaleups across Central Eastern Europe

Wolves Summit, the organiser of the most active technology and innovation conference in Central Eastern Europe, which brings together 2000+ of startups and investors every year, is announcing a new event format – Alpha Wolves. This is a two-day event dedicated to global LPs, fund managers & scaleups. On the 7th and 8th of April, hundreds of scaleup founders, regional and international investors and Limited Partners will meet in Warsaw to explore funding opportunities.This is a unique opportunity for scaleup owners, i.e. companies that have already completed at least the first round of financing, have a developing product, and are now establishing their core competencies and departments to scale up their business. 

Co-founding vs. VC: new ways of investing in tech

Join two venture builders and serial investors in discussing how the industry transitions from investment only towards collaborative, educational and mentoring initiatives. When confronted with the concept of venture capitalists, most people think of start-up investors trying to identify the next unicorn or decacorn in pursuit of the highest possible profit. However, what does it mean to find start-ups to invest in, what are their needs and requirements and what is the success rate of such investments? That and much more was a part of the Wolves Summit 2021. Join Alina Nilsson, Co-founder at EMERGE and SOLYANKA, as a moderator, together with her guests Alexander Chekan, Founding team member, Chief of Staff @Palta and Nina Alastruey, Principle @Demium and gain insights into the decision processes of these two companies when it comes to investment as well as the general venture capital industry, new forms of start-up investments and smart money.
