How to launch a successful VC fund | London

We are delighted to invite you to our newly refurbished London Wall office for breakfast and an exciting programme focusing on fund raising for VC fund managers.

We are lucky to have, as our keynote speaker, the presentation specialist Benjamin Ball, who has forged a tremendously successful career advising business leaders on how to present to investors, clients and the media. Attendees will be given invaluable insight into the pitching process and the psychology of marketing. In addition, we will also hear from successful VC manager Atomico and also learn from the experience of first time fund manager, InReach Ventures.
