Secondaries and trends in Venture Capital according to Staffan Mörndal from Verdane
We asked Staffan Mörndal from Verdane about secondary direct transactions and the current investment environment. Here are his insights.
After the success with digital initiatives of webinars and podcasts for the Limited Partners & General Partners, 0100 Conferences, will continue delivering high-quality networking experience in the virtual space. We were delighted to host more than 400 GP & LP professionals from across the world together with keynote speaker Tim Draper at our first virtual event. The conference was a great success also in terms of networking and we gained lots of positive feedback from participants.
This Autumn, 0100 Conferences continues delivering high-quality virtual Private Equity & Venture Capital conferences full of interactive networking options, unique business opportunities and important insights from top senior professionals.
This blog will help you to navigate through the Hopin tool, what you can expect from the virtual conference, and how you can benefit from the virtual event and make the most of it.
HOW TO START
Go to our website and check our upcoming virtual events. Select the right ticket that best suits your needs and preferences. Limited Partners and General Partners are free of pass.
After you fill in the information, you will get an email with the confirmation of your registration, which looks like this:
To finish the registration process, you will simply click on the first link in the email, and go to checkout. The last two steps in finishing your registration are to sign up at Hopin and to create your own profile.
After you sign up you will see this page the opening page informing you about the start of the conference:
Click on “create your profile” to finish your registration. PLEASE NOTE: The information that you will fill in into Hopin when creating your profile, will help other participants to find you during the conference. If you don’t create your own profile, other participants won’t be able to see that you are attending the conference neither invite you for a 1on1 meeting.
Once you create your own profile at Hopin, you will be redirected to the main reception.
Prior to the event, you will also receive notification emails with the button that will redirect you to the main reception of the virtual conference. Once the conference starts, you will be able to access the event.
Reception is like an overview of the whole event. On the left side, you will be able to see: the Main Streaming Stage, The Breakout Sessions, and the Schedule (Agenda). It is the navigation bar that enables you to switch between different areas of the virtual conference, including the Main Stage, Breakout Sessions, and 1on1 meetings.
On the right side, you will see Chat which will be available for you during all 3 days of the conference, as well as Polls in which you can vote. In the peoples' section, you will see everyone who will be enrolled in the conference.
The stage is the most important area of the conference where all panels and presentations will be streamed. You will be able to view and listen to the panel discussions, presentations, and keynotes during the whole day of the conference. In addition to this, you will be able to chat with fellow participants, ask questions, vote in our polls, as well as review all people who are watching the panel discussion with you.
A session is a ‘virtual roundtable or room’ where up to 20 people can participate (video/audio on) and up to 500 attendees can watch. Just like during a face-to-face conference, after each panel discussion, you will be able to join a virtual meeting room session dedicated to a particular panel topic. This way, you can discuss the theme further and raise questions that won't be answered during the panel discussion, or simply connect with the right people interested in the same topic. In addition to this, during the whole virtual conference, you will be able to create your own breakout session with a topic of your choice and gain valuable insights from fellow delegates.
NETWORKING – ABILITY TO REQUEST 1ON1 CALLS
In the networking area, everyone can meet everyone through one on one video meetings. Prior to the virtual conference, you will receive from 0100 Conferences a list of delegates who registered so that you can preview whom you can talk with during the event. All you need to do is to enter the networking area and invite a delegate of your choice to a 1on1 meeting. There are two options how you can start a 1on1 call:
You click on the “ready” button in the networking area and our random matchmaking will select a first available random person for a call.
You invite directly someone specific in the “People” section which is on the very right side in the networking area by clicking the “Invite to video call” button.
As we know that you want to be able to meet with one another in order to help build meaningful connections, Hopin now gives you the opportunity to schedule meetings just like in an in-person conference. This feature allows you to send out meeting invitations for up to 4 other users (limit to 5 attendees per meeting). If the attendees accept your invitation, they will be notified 5 minutes before the meeting is about to start, and once again when the meeting starts. The notification can take you directly into the meeting room. Learn more about hot to pre-arrange meeting here.
By buying the Group Ticket + Expo Booth you will get the opportunity to promote your materials for instance pre-recorded videos or a live video stream session in the virtual expo area. That way, all attendees can learn more about you and your company. In the expo area, you will have the possibility for a real stand, to broadcast from the booth or ask questions directly. Prior to the conference, we will prepare your materials in the Expo area for capturing attendee interest.
On the left side of the reception, you will also be able to access and review our agenda. That way you can check any time when your favorite panel discussion or keynote speaker starts.
INTERNET BROWSER PREFERENCES
