The Hungarian Venture Capital Association and Portfolio.hu join forces for the fifth time in 2013 in order to create the most influential regional forum for PE/VC and M&A professionals in the CEE region.

For the first time we are also pleased to collaborate with CEU Business School as a co-organizer.

The focus of this year’s conference is innovation, which is of key importance for anyone trying to recover from the crisis. Courtesy of the JEREMIE programme Hungary’s corporate segment was given new impetus over the past few years. This year, it is our great pleasure to welcome world-renowned investor and philanthropist George Soros among the guests of our conference. At the event Mr. Soros will talk in an interview about how innovation could be promoted in the Central and Eastern European region and how an entrepreneurial ecosystem functioning well in the developed world could take root here. (Moderator: Mel Horwitch, CEU Business School).

It is not easy to prosper in the current economic and regulatory environment in Hungary, which begs the question: a startup or a well-established company can entice the appetite better for strategic and financial investors? This is one of the questions we will seek answers to at the conference with a line-up of internationally acclaimed experts. We will also put great emphasis on presenting the regional developments on the M&A market, which could reveal the balance of forces in the CEE region.
