Willy Braun, Partner @ daphni

“It is very rare to meet students who want to join the small and weird VC world, so it is nice to be able to give them feedback. It also raises us questions what we do or we should do better. It is a super good event and I hope there will be many editions.”

Andrea Tassistro, CEO & Co-Founder @ 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, Venture Partner @ EQT Ventures

“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.”

“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.”
