In June, 0100 Conferences has provided you with the first Virtual PE&VC Conference – CEE Region. The conference was a great success hosting more than 400 GP & LP professionals from across the world together with a keynote speaker Tim Draper from Draper Associates.

After the initial efforts of switching to virtual space by running a series of webinars and organizing the first virtual conference, 0100 Conferences brings you in October - 3 days event full of networking and unique insights from the most experienced professionals in the field.

About the Conference

Our virtual conference is a 3 days event bringing together key fund managers, limited partners, general partners, family offices and industry professionals from the UK & Ireland region. The ultimate goal of the conference is to bring together the best from the PE and VC industry and create a virtual platform that fosters learning, inspiration, and most importantly, valuable networking in the COVID-19 unprecedented times. We want our audience to stand out from the crowd for 2021 and get prepared for the after-pandemic and post-Brexit PE market with value-creation strategies that they will hear during the conference.
