Through gamification, we're building the first Social Network where you learn about Venture Capital, build an investor reputation as an aspiring VC, discover startups as a VC, and become visible in a different manner as a Founder or as an Ecosystem.

VENTURE CAPITAL INVESTMENT CHALLENGES

PUMPED-UP PARTICIPANTS

Andrea Tassistro, Founder & CEO @ Foodetective

“One of the best events I've done so far [..] It's helping me get to know, have like a personal contact with all the amazing VCs, [..] and have a precise feedback on what we should do in order to grow, recruit and make sure that our company becomes viable fast.”

Paulina Szyzdek, Challenger @ Edition #3

“It’s demanding team working and time management exercise. It’s an intense day full of emotions, new people, networking opportunities and deep learning sessions.”

Bartosz Jakubowski, Investor @ Alven

“It's a very innovative format [..] extremely helpful for us as investors [..] because seeing all these new brilliant people wanting to work as a VC kind of asks us to be more demanding with ourselves to be better VCs. [..] It is a great crowd and it's very refreshing.”

Jean de La Rochebrochard, Partner @ Kima Ventures

“I was interested because the format is different [..] It is a good opportunity to connect with good entrepreneurs and good people willing to become VC at some point [..] I'll be happy to come back.”

Camille Kriebitzsch, Co-Founder & Principal @ Eutopia

“It's a perfect occasion to meet startups, wannabe VCs, VCs, it's quick and interactive. It's a really good exercise we cannot really do when you are at school or later on. It is a good experience for everyone.”

"Delivering value by offering a unique format.

Real startups meet aspiring VCs the latter behaving as the “VCs for a day” in unique, high-intensity workshop combinations which simulate fundraising talks.
Each workshop is mentored by a world-class VC.
Aspiring VCs close the event by going through their Aspiring VCs Demo Day, where they are challenged on their one investment recommendation by the jury of VCs.
The most structured, thorough team of aspiring VCs is designated as the “Upcoming VCs” by the jury of VCs.
In parallel, the startup selected the most by the aspiring VCs during the Aspiring VCs Demo Day is designated as the “Most Investable Startup”.
