The annual investment conference of the Hungarian Private Equity and Venture Capital Association (HVCA) is being held this year for the 23d time. It provides a forum for prominent participants, investors, executive and business decision-makers of the venture capital and private equity sector in Central and Eastern Europe for the exchange and discussion of experiences and professional networking.
The still ongoing world pandemic has a big effect on our lives and plans as does the ongoing war conflicts and associated economic sanctions.
We start the conference by analysing the short-term effects of the global economic environment on the Hungarian economy and the venture capital industry.
In the long term we will assess how the domestic situation of financing early-stage investments can be improved from the point of view of international – but especially the point of view of overseas angel investors.
How Hungarian unicorn companies come into being and how they have developed. What kind of challenges are faced when a portfolio company starting from Hungary wishes to attract geographically diversified investors in different investment rounds in financing the expansion of the portfolio company?
We will look into the life of the companies after financial investor exit.
And finally, attention will be paid to labor market competition for retaining labor that also reaches the venture and private equity industries. The challenges of the home office will also be on the table.
