The European PE & VC platform 0100 Conferences is entering a new phase, rebranding to Zero One Hundred Conferences. The company will formally align with the related Zero One Hundred ecosystem, which has a long history of supporting European entrepreneurs. The collaboration will amplify the Zero One Hundred Conferences' influence on the investor scene in Europe.
As for the name, "zero one hundred" epitomizes self-realization and confidence, with each number representing a particular growth phase: from sparking ideas to evolving and thriving.
"This symbolism is reflected within our platform, which welcomes visionary early-stage investors, those focusing on scaleups and later phases, as well as big investment funds. At the same time, the company itself is evolving and broadening its focus," says Pavol Fuchs, CEO of Zero One Hundred Conferences.
The business is moving forward from predominantly local events, with their next pan-European gathering co-organized with the city of Amsterdam.
Synergies within the entrepreneurial ecosystem
The platform will leverage its relationship with the affiliated investment fund, Zero One Hundred, which will support the 22 countries of Emerging Europe.
"Naturally, the conferences tremendously contribute to strengthening our network. At the same time, as a thought leader focused on Emerging Europe, we are excited to integrate the best of the region into these events. This synergy is a powerful driver of value creation for the ecosystem," explains Dusan Duffek, General Partner of Zero One Hundred. "We already tested the possibilities with our previous Slovakia-focused Zero Gravity Capital fund, and now we're ready to explore a new region full of potential," he adds.
According to Duffek, effective community-building is the future of venture capital and a must for any fund striving to have an impactful voice. Since Zero One Hundred Conferences is one of Europe's most recognized and influential investment platforms, the fund automatically operates within an ever-growing community.
"Such a robust network is truly powerful, and we're confident that the community around the entire Zero One Hundred ecosystem will benefit from it in the years to come," Fuchs concludes.
In addition to rebranding, Zero One Hundred has also launched a new venture capital fund. Founded by builders with a unique ecosystem, backing the best startups from Emerging Europe, Zero One Hundred Fund aims to support innovative startups and entrepreneurs in the region. We do so by providing access to capital, mentorship, and a supportive community. To learn more about Zero One Hundred and its portfolio companies, click here.
