Why you should come?

Now in its 20th year, the HVCA Annual Investment Conference brings together some of the key investors and business figures from the world of private equity, venture capital and direct investing in CEE. Headline speaker this year will be Christian Majgaard, the pioneering brand and business culture visionary credited with transforming LEGO from a low tech plastic toy manufacturer to a 21st- century brand as Creative Genius and Head of Global Brand & Business Development at LEGO. Joerg Bauer, former head of GE Hungary and owner of Tungsram Group will present the Tungsram story: revitalization of the innovative Tungsram heritage and their pursuit for future-safe technologies. Other speakers analyse the business opportunity provided to private equity investors by strategic exits. Participants also discuss the potential and challenges of the fintech sector - from both entrepreneurs’ and investors’ points of view. Highly regarded financial and impact investors try to find the balance between IRR and social impact.
