A meeting place for the people with the inside track on investment

From the Global Heads of M&A and TMT at Goldman Sachs, to the head of new listings at NASDAQ, to the world’s leading angel and venture investors, we know how to connect the entire investor ecosystem. That’s what Venture focuses on doing.

Held right before Web Summit, this invite-only gathering is a day of focused talks, curated roundtable discussions and a chance to engage with the people driving change in investment.
