In September 2016, the International Venture Club, together with a select group of invited guests, will gather at the on the shores of the Atlantic at the spectacular resort of Cascais, Portugal.  Over the course of two intense days, under the benevolent sunshine of Portugal's famous Estoril coast over 125 senior corporate innovators, independent venture capital fund managers and strategic investors will join forces to debate and do business. It truly is a unique event. 

This high-level meeting, which is an initiative of the International Venture Club, has been designed by leading investors, weary of formulaic panels and keynote conferences, in the simple belief that senior and seasoned investors have a real need to come together, to speak, to listen, in short to collaborate.  In a collective spirt of trust investors attending will deep-dive, via facilitated breakout sessions, into core issues challenging senior practitioners:
  • The State of European Tech Investment - the latest macro trends and financials driving investments and exits. 
  • Playing together - how corporates and independents can work together in portfolio companies
  • Exit Horizons - Unicorns are rare - how does corporate M&A stack up?
  • The Global perspective - Get the U.S. and Asian view on connecting with Europe? 
  • Growth Capital – Is the lower-mid market the next hunting ground for investors in innovation? 
There are numerous reasons to mention why not to miss out on this year's Smart Capital Event. We have listed the most important ones below for your convenience:
