We’re celebrating that important contribution to Europe’s competitiveness, productivity and economic growth at the EVCA Venture Capital Forum in Berlin on 7-8 November (read our report showing how venture boosts innovation here).
Held at the heart of one of Europe’s most exciting start-up capitals, the forum has already attracted many of the industry’s leading lights. You can see our fantastic line-up of speakers here.
The EVCA will also be toasting the very best of Europe’s science based start-ups, thanks to our partnership with the Falling Walls Foundation.
EVCA Secretary-General Dörte Höppner will be judging the cream of this year’s crop of companies as they compete to win the Falling Walls Science Start-Up of the Year 2013. It’s another sign of our commitment to turning promising entrepreneurs and early stage firms into world-class companies.
It’s time to look again at European venture capital. There is a brilliant combination of repeat entrepreneurs and seasoned venture capitalists who have the skills to match any Silicon Valley outfit and are building truly global firms (read our report Smart Choice).
Please join us as we debate the future of this European venture capital, the only industry which grows fresh new ideas into super start-ups.
