Kiev Semi-Final of New Europe Venture Contest – FREE registration!

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.

Investors are from Mars, tech companies are from Venus

Investors are from Mars while tech and new media companies are from Venus. Lawyers are not so bad. Buyouts are like any other trading deals so it’s good to have an advisor who has more negotiating skill and experience then the buyer. We need The Founding Fathers of the Polish Internet not just because they […]

Up or out!

One more memory from Kiev where I was for TMT.Ventures’08 Kiev conference. The next day we had a house party at Denis Dovgopoliy‘s place. We were talking about VC business and what’s driving it. To make the long story short it’s the survival of the strongest. Meaning – who delivers the biggest growth – stays. […]

Beware Kiev, VCs are coming back!

They already invested quite a lot of their time in Western Europe, conquered America and then they came to Kiev. Very keen on beautiful local women. Who am I talking about? No, I’m not talking about VCs […]
