Private Equity Wire webinar

Silicon Valley Blues: How VCs are adapting to a down market

Talking points:

A recent Private Equity Wire survey shows that the fundraising environment has become more challenging, heightening the urgency around finding pathways for growth.

Late-stage VC has been hit hardest by a reset in valuations, with the number of high-profile examples growing through 2022. This has particular implications for other stages and sectors of the VC lifecycle in the second half of 2022.

One such opportunity for companies to achieve success is to go borderless. The number of unicorn start-ups is blossoming across Europe, supported by a network of VC hubs in London, Berlin, Paris and other cities. There are however complex challenges that must be considered. Join industry leaders on this session to learn about:

  • The current investment environment for venture capital
  • Emerging sectors for start-up companies and founders going into 2023
  • Scaling up investments, international expansion and the strategic benefits of going borderless
  • The challenges associated with international expansion and how technology helps companies overcome these obstacles

Speakers: 

Sam Perry (moderator),Director of Strategic Alliances – Private Equity & Venture Capital, Globalization Partners

Hélène Falchier, Partner, Portage Ventures

Dan Aylott, Managing Director, Head of European Private Investments, Cambridge Associates

Edward Knight, President, Antler
