Why you should come?

The Hungarian Venture Capital and Private Equity Association (HVCA), founded in 1991, will hold its 24th annual investment conference this autumn on 21 September, 2023, which is the largest and most prestigious professional event of the Hungarian VC/PE market.

The conference will provide a forum for the most prominent players, investors, executives and business decision-makers of the Central and Eastern European venture capital and private equity sector to share and discuss market trends and will present the most topical issues with prominent players in the sector.

Many exciting issues will be raised and discussed during the full-day conference.

The first panel discussion will focus on non-conventional venture debt. This panel aims to explore the current role of venture debt in early-stage firms’ life cycle, outlining a number of positive synergies and the nature of complementarity between venture debt and venture capital finance. The discussion will proceed to address the future of the venture debt market.

After the panel discussion, we will hear a niche presentation on the McKinsey study entitled: How Europe's fastest growing start-ups are becoming unicorns.

As in previous years, a social issue indirectly related to the private equity sector will also be discussed: Áron Szilágyi, a three-time Olympic champion, will be our guest. In his presentation, he will show MEEF, the Hungarian Elite Athletes' Interest Protection Forum, an association with a purpose to develop programs for Hungarian elite athletes in cooperation with business partners and educational institutions and provide them with financial and legal advice during their active years and after retirement.

There will also be an exciting panel discussion to explore the effects and benefits of featuring start-ups on TV.

We will also address the leaders of HVCA/HunBAN/StartUp Hungary to highlight the role and initiatives of individual organisations within the regional VC and PE community including highlighting the impact of the three organisations on the startup ecosystem.

Naturally, in addition to the interesting content, we will be waiting for you with delicious snacks, delicious coffees, and great wines during the networking breaks.
