About the Event

Take a look at one of our previous events: view here.

We are delighted to invite you to a thought-provoking event on the topic of "UK innovation ecosystem discussion: venture capitalist opinion." This event aims to bring together key stakeholders in the technology and venture capital industry to discuss and analyze the various aspects of the UK innovation ecosystem.

The event will cover a wide range of topics, including ideation, inception, incubation, acceleration, growth, and exit strategies such as mergers and acquisitions. We will also delve into the important areas of legislation and taxes, exploring their impact on startups and venture capital investments.

Further discussions will revolve around key challenges faced by startups and investors, including the secondary shares market and valuations. We will explore how these factors shape the ecosystem and what measures can be taken to foster growth and success.

Moreover, we will discuss the significance of ecosystem partners and the role of transparency in driving innovation. Our aim is to provide insights on how the UK can attract more companies, even in the face of competition from alternative jurisdictions. 

Additionally, we will delve into the intricacies of venture capital due diligence, exploring why it often fails and how it can be improved. We will address the importance of key performance indicators (KPIs) and question whether venture capitalists truly add value to startups.

The event promises to be a fantastic opportunity for networking and exchange of ideas among industry leaders, investors, entrepreneurs, and policymakers. We hope you can join us for this insightful discussion on the 27th of September in Central London.

Please RSVP at your earliest convenience to secure your spot. We look forward to your presence at this engaging event.
