Venture Capital in Silicon Valley and Germany – What Do Startups Need to Know?

April 27, 2021 @ 11:30 am - 1:00 pm PDT

Register Here Button

While global venture capital is thriving, investor market and investment dynamics significantly differ by geography. As startups position themselves to raise equity funding, it is imperative to fully understand how different VC communities operate. What may be expected in the German venture capital market, may be less relevant in Silicon Valley or vice versa.

This panel discussion will include VC firms from both Germany and Silicon Valley that invest in North America and Europe. Speakers will provide insights into their investment approaches and key criteria they apply to their funding decisions. The event will be interesting to startups in both geographies, especially if they are considering to target investors outside their home market as they grow their business.

Join us for a compelling event exploring the investment dynamics of two international VC markets.
