Why be part of the conference?
It's never been easier to meet the top-ranking seasoned professionals from the PE and VC industry now. In a matter of a few clicks, you can join deeply insightful discussions or meet heads of international funds, expanding your pool of contacts. All while sitting in your bedroom or home office.
With investments increasing 7% year-by-year in the Central and Eastern Europe region, the number of startups and SMEs keep getting strong, prompting investors to bring their skills, expertise and, of course capital.
It's all about networking
A strong network of contacts is the cornerstone of every business professional. And 0100 Conferences provides you with an opportunity to start a chat conversation or send a direct message to any attendee, invite potential partners on 1on1 calls, or share your LinkedIn profile.
For the best possible virtual experience, 0100 Conferences has partnered with Hopin, a provider of exceptional online meeting technology. This way, scheduling meetings will feel almost like at an in-person conference.
Keynote speech by Tomas Kubica from KKR
For this year, the keynote speaker joining the conference would be Tomas Kubica, Private Equity director from KKR.
