EBAN Winter Summit 2018
On 22-23 October, over 400 business angels, VCs, corporates, policy-makers, and innovators came together in Luxembourg for the 17th annual edition of the EBAN Winter Summit.
The theme of the event “Better Together: How to Shape a More Sustainable and Innovative World” gave rise to discussions on impact investing and sustainability, angel investing and entrepreneurship, blended finance and public/private partnerships, and more.
Despite the many different topics being discussed at the Summit, the central message coming from speakers, entrepreneurs and guests alike was this – collaborating with different stakeholders in our industry, as well as across gender and national lines, is the key to bringing systemic change to the world, be it for saving the planet, scaling businesses or investing. In congruence with the Summit’s goal to promote inclusivity, EBAN was proud to have 30% of the attendees be women, as well as to host attendees from 45 countries around the world.
Business Angels of Slovenia were this time represented by AlpVent AG investment company, incorporated in Switzerland. At the event AlpVent successfully promoted its new ScaleUp fund and secured support of the European Investment Fund.
