[ OUR PURPOSE ] We are on a mission to unlock early & growth stage investor and entrepreneurial talents. How so? We are building a global community of established Venture Capitalists, aspiring Venture Capitalists and visionary Entrepreneurs to help “Invest Better” and “Raise Better”, across ecosystems, verticals, stages and geographies. [ VENTURE CAPITAL CHALLENGE: AN INNOVATIVE EVENT FORMAT ] A genuine Venture Capital Investment Challenge. A full-scale simulation of the fundraising & startup due diligence process. A life-sized simulation of a fundraising round. An immersive event where challengers (students & young professionals) incarnate Venture Capitalists and invest fake tickets in genuine startups, which behave as if they were raising a round. Prominent Venture Capitalists (VCs) are the mentors to both the startups and challengers. The VCs transmit their methods, insights and best practices. It mimics the authentic venture capital investment process, connecting established investors (VCs) to real startups while helping aspiring “wannabe” VCs dive into the peculiar world of venture capital. [ WHY PARTICIPATE ] 1) As a CHALLENGER: Test your investment & due diligence skills in a life-size test with genuine startups and seasoned VCs. Get potentially hired as an Analyst/Associate. 2) As a STARTUP: Full-scale training to the fundraising process. Connect with VCs and prepare the ground for your potential upcoming funding rounds. 3) As a VC: Identify talented aspiring VCs to join your team as Interns, Analysts or Associates. Meet entrepreneurs and add to your deal flow promising startups. [ TESTIMONIALS FROM PARTICIPANTS ] The ecosystem needs to understand how to introduce things to VCs, and why we take this or this decision […] It is a good opportunity for us to explain to everyone what our methods are, what we expect as information.” Raffi, VC @ Alven, member of the Jury. It is a very interesting event as the format is not formal and very different from any other event.” Stéphane, Challenger. You test your skills very well, you get insights from real VCs.” Tom, Challenger. It is very rare to meet students who want to join the small and weird VC world, so it is nice to be able to give them feedback [..] It also raises us questions what we do or we should do better. It is a super good event and I hope there will be many editions.” Willy, VC @ daphni, member of the Jury. We never had an event that was that closely related to VCs, a workshop between VCs, startups and students. […] It comes at the right moment as we are fundraising right now, so having the whole due diligence and VC-type question process before, falls a the right time. […]Everyone has been very into the event and pumped up about it. […] The feeling is very much positive.” Alexei, CEO & Cofounder @ TasteHit. Thank you all the team for this great event. Worked hard and played hard. Well done! […] It was absolutely amazing because we had so many different companies and we have the chance to interact with all of them […] and learn about the role of a VC, understand what they do, how they make a valuation, have a real-life test.” Dominique , Challenger member of the winning team.
