The past two years have changed the way we conduct business. From an unprecedented pace and quantity of deals to growing uncertainty about the future, the Venture Capital scene is changing rapidly. It is time to take a step back, reflect and put meaningful in-person relationships in the center. We’re passionate about the region and we want to facilitate relevant conversations to make CEElicon Valley more than a vision.
Two-day event to strengthen the ties between VCs from emerging markets across CEE and to build bridges with developed ecosystems.
