Overview

 

In September 2018, the International Venture Club, together with a select group of invited guests, will gather Portugal. Over the course of two intense days 80 senior corporate innovators, independent venture capital fund managers and strategic investors will join forces to debate and do business.

 

The International Venture Club’s flagship event will unite 80+ partner level members of the IVC. The event will provide the participants with the rare chance to meet in a relaxed, retreat style setting to discuss issues and deal opportunities in closed-door sessions.

 

The programme of this high-level meeting 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 spirit of trust investors attending will deep-dive, via facilitated breakout sessions, into core issues challenging senior practitioners:



 
                                       

''The IVC and Tech Tour have been running mission-critical events for Europe’s tech investor community for many, many years. Smart Capital 2017 brings all that experience & insight to a very special summit meeting of independent and corporate venture capital investors. 

 

We all know deals don’t happen overnight. They also don’t happen with strangers. Just like last year, Smart Capital brings over 80 senior investors together to forge new relationships, deepen existing ones, and with dedicated co-investment sessions – do business."
