More than 70 Endeavor Entrepreneurs, candidate companies, and leading investors from across Europe, MENA, Southeast Asia, and Latin America gathered at the Orrick offices in London July 13, 2017, for day-long Endeavor Investor Network event.
The Endeavor Investor Network was launched in 2013 to provide opportunities for Endeavor Entrepreneurs and investors to come together for networking and conversation.
The London event kicked off with an Investor Roundtable, where London-based investors and their regional counterpoints discussed investment trends and opportunities across EMEA, as well as a workshop for entrepreneurs. The workshop, led by Silicon Valley Bank’s Andy Tsao, Orrick’s Ylan Steiner, and White Star Capital’s Christian Hernandez, provided the entrepreneurs with an inside look into successfully navigating the world of venture capital and fundraising. An “Ask Me Anything” session followed, allowing the entrepreneurs to ask their burning questions to understand the investor’s perspective on how to best prepare for a capital raise and cultivate relationships that convert.
The event wrapped up with a speed-networking session, which featured tailored one-on-one conversations between investors and entrepreneurs who were mindfully matched, and resulted in more than 200 formal connections made.
This month’s event was generously sponsored by Silicon Valley Bank and Orrick, and hosted at Orrick’s offices in London. The next Endeavor Investor Network event will take place this October in New York City.
