An International Early Stage Investors Summit, Russia's largest meeting place of business angels, representatives of venture capital funds, accelerators and other early stage investment market players.
The Summit stands on its principles — it will be the most closed informal meeting of investors away from the city noise.
Among the speakers — active business angels from Russia, USA, Sweden, Switzerland, Ireland, Belgium, Greece, Turkey, Estonia and other countries of the world.
This year's summit program will consist of three main blocks:
INVESTMENT ACADEMY. For those who are starting to work in the market, who wish to understand the trends, learn how to search and evaluate promising companies and structure transactions. The participants will learn how to grow a portfolio start-up that may become a multi-million asset with high returns in several years.
VENTURE INSIGHTS. For those who would like to see the direction in which the market is heading and learn the opinions of the best international investors about current investment strategies, interaction with the business ecosystem and the investment community.
GLOBAL EXCHANGE. Track for experienced investors. The participants will discuss international experience in transactions structuring, specifics of cross-border investments, portfolio structure, as well as the experience of colleagues in successful and failed exits.
An important part of the Summit is an open exchange of transaction flows. Successful Russian and international investors will invite the summit participants to join the investment process. Lead investors will tell you why they join this or other project, and what they expect from the start-ups in the future.
More than 35 speakers from more than 24 countries have already confirmed their participation.
The Summit highlight will be the annual EARLY STAGE INVESTMENT AWARDS 2019 prize-giving ceremony, with prizes awarded to individuals and entities that have made a significant contribution to the development of the early stage investment market.
