First Investor Talks in Monaco – a great success

New year, new location: for the first time, selected start-ups from Deutsche Börse Venture Network travelled to Monaco as part of the “Investor Talks” event series. Together with the Deutsche Börse Venture Network team, they connected with local family offices, venture capital firms (VCs) and high-net-worth individuals.

After a short welcome reception, nine Venture Network companies presented themselves to 35 investors. One-on-one meetings followed, providing opportunities for personal networking and individual discussions in small groups. The format benefits start-ups and investors alike. On the one hand, it enables companies to network with potential investors. On the other hand, international investors who are interested in strong growth companies from Germany are able to establish new contacts to start-up CEOs.

This was especially true in Monaco: many family offices and VCs are located in the Principality of Monaco on the Côte d’Azur, but up until now, Monaco had never seen an event like the Investor Talks. Consequently, investors were especially interested in meeting the Venture Network’s top companies – so much so that, in the end, demand exceeded capacity.

There was much positive feedback, and not only with regard to the talks between start-ups and investors. The location itself also garnered much praise: the Hermitage Monte-Carlo – one of the most magnificent hotels in Monaco – offered a unique setting for the whole event.

The Investor Talks have been an integral part of Deutsche Börse Venture Network’s offering for its members since the beginning. In 2017, there will be ten of these events, e.g. in Paris, London, Palo Alto and New York.
