Time to market has become the key factor for growing successful companies to leading positions/ a leading position on the global market. A growth can be accelerated by external financing, including funding by venture capital funds. How to approach a potential investment from a VC fund? What is ‘a value added’ by VC fund? How to work with them? Understanding of above questions is important for successful cooperation with potential investors/a potential investor who usually stays in the company as an investor, for 4-6 years. The venture capital industry has been the worst asset class in Europe for the past 20 years. It is full of losers and bureaucrats/bureaucracy. How to recognize and avoid them?

Rafał will also share his experience of leading investments of different companies/businesses that became European or global leaders.
