Jared Schrieber, US Unicorn founder alumnus, explores with Mary Alcantara the challenges of early stage investing in the Hungarian start-up ecosystem. The discussion will tackle barriers to entry in becoming an angel investor, legal limitations, and lack of early-stage vehicles, drawing upon contrasts to the US and to other European investment ecosystems.

Panel Discussion: The Challenges and Rewards of Cross Border, Co-Investments

Investors might assist their portfolio companies’ growth in varying ways and with different contributions based on their geographic location and proximity to the portfolio company's starting market. Or is this assistance model outdated in the post-Covid-remote world? How can return expectations and investor rights be harmonized among investors from different rounds and very different regions? The panel will discuss these issues from the perspectives of investors from different investment rounds and with geographically diversified locations.

Panel Discussion: Workforce Recruitment, Retention, and Motivation

Workforce retention and shortage relief through retraining, and the activation of the less focused workforce - in recent years, especially in the situation caused by the pandemic, the working conditions and the expectations of employees have changed - in the current labor market environment, the problem is not only that there are not enough IT professionals to serve the demand - the retention of current employees and the greater participation of women and seniors in active work are just as much a challenge.
