This AVP Masterclass ''Introduction to VCs'' will provide the insights for future entrepreneurs to understanding what VCs look for, what their business model is, how they think, what they do, and what you should look for in a VC while raising money for your startup?
After a short keynote, you will work in small groups to evaluate several investment opportunities, and discuss if they are suitable for an investment from a VC fund.
The session is run by Ekaterina Gianelli, an Investment Director at Inventure, a Nordic venture capital firm investing in seed and early-stage technology startups. Previously, Ekaterina has been operationally involved in scaling Fjord, the design & innovation consultancy (acquired by Accenture Interactive in 2013), and a Nordic adtech startup Kiosked. Based out of Helsinki, she is an active community builder, and has been contributing to multiple initiatives strengthening the Nordic tech ecosystem. Drawing on her experiences, Ekaterina actively bridges the gap between design, business, and technology.
