We’ll enjoy dinner and drinks followed by a talk and informal Q&A with Carlos Eduardo Espinal, Partner at Seedcamp.

Seedcamp is your first round fund. They back ambitious founders from around the world and help them build billion-dollar global companies by providing them the right access at the right time to learning, network, and capital. Seedcamp invests initially €200k and accelerates startups across the product market fit, traction, growth, and scale stages, from seed funding to IPO.

Carlos will share what he looks for in the companies they work with, and provide tips and insights for growing startups. He has plenty of experience - in 8 years they’ve backed almost 200 companies with one unicorn and 91% having raised further funding to a tune of $350m.

This dinner is for founders and entrepreneurs working on startups. Take the opportunity to talk to Carlos one-on-one over a delicious meal.

Expect a lively evening!

The cost includes private dining experience with after dinner speaker, 2 course dinner with wine plus highly curated and relevant networking.
