The last time we had a conference in Kiev it was a blast – the event itself, the afterparty, the people me met… I found some historical parallels between modern VCs and Vikings. And last but not least I managed to have a beer with a global VC!

It’s great to go back, I’m very excited :-) I will try to (video)blog some of it… but you better experience it for yourself :-) After all – it’s FREE to participate…

Capital markets await Ukrainian companies. Success stories and growth strategies for both big and medium companies will be presented on December 1st, 2011 – PwC HQ, Kiev.
