VC Party: the value of networking

Jan Borgstädt, Partner JOIN Capital | March 9th, 2017

On February 27th and for the second year, the German JOIN Capital and the Italian P101 organized the VC Party, within the framework of the SuperVenture conference. This conference is the “sister” of SuperReturn International – the famous private equity and venture capital event that every year brings together more than 2,000 leaders and industry experts in Berlin. On the stage of SuperVenture 2017 were CEOs and industry leaders from the most successful European and international companies.

In this context, the VC Party is the “informal space” dedicated to networking, maximizing chances to meet, debate, discuss and create new partnerships and synergies. This year more than 500 guests took part in the event, including venture capitalists, business angels, and digital entrepreneurs from 133 different venture funds from the US, Europe, Israel and Asia.

We think that events like this are to be treasured, since they confirm the high potential of European innovation, which can come out more and more strongly in the near future only if we start to weave a strong and deep network today, laying the foundation for an entirely new way of doing business. This is why JOIN Capital and P101 are trying to nurture a broad network of entrepreneurs, professionals and investors who are willing to share their experience and knowledge. This, we believe, is added value for us, for our partners, and especially for the start-ups that we support on their path to greatness.
