Focus on SMEs and Entrepreneurship Reactivation of investment in Startups

This Focus on SMEs and Entrepreneurship will take place on Wednesday 30 September at 11:00h online. It is organised by Startup Valencia and CEEI Valencia with funding from IVACE and with the collaboration of various entities from the Entrepreneurship Ecosystem of the Valencia Region. We have top national speakers on the subject of business investment such as KFund, Kibo Ventures, Swanalaab Venture Factory, Conexo Ventures, Telefónica-Wayra, JME Ventures, etc.

Investment in startups has been reactivated after the crisis caused by the coronavirus: more than 300% of investment operations by Venture Capital. Has the way of investing changed? Is investment concentrated in certain sectors?

Organised by Startup Valencia and CEEI Valencia under the Focus Pyme y Emprendimiento initiative, the virtual meeting Reactivation of Investment in Startups after COVID-19 will analyse the impact of the global pandemic when it comes to investing in young technology-based companies and how these have had to adapt to the new era.

To this end, the meeting will be attended by national and international representatives of the main investment funds and technology companies. Among them, Miguel Arias, Director of Global Entrepreneurship at Telefónica; Samuel Gil, Partner at JME Ventures; Aquilino Peña, Cofounder & Managing Partner at Kibo Ventures and Martín Varsavsky, CEO at Overture Life.
