So, we are doing this. In parallel to the launch of Speedinvest x, a micro VC under the Speedinvest-brand that will focus on entrepreneurs who are a) building the platforms and marketplace businesses of tomorrow and b) the technologies that enable them (more here), we have also been working on The Marketplace Conference.
What’s that, you ask?
As we can’t get enough of network effects we are happy to announce that Speedinvest & Crux Capital are organizing the first annual Marketplace Conference in San Francisco on March 22nd. It unites marketplace founders, VCs, and subject matter experts to discuss and debate the present and future of marketplaces and network effects. Join us for thought leadership on fundraising, growth hacking and strategy, legal issues and more, as well as office hours with top VCs.
What to expect?
People in functional roles that will benefit from attending this event include: founders, CEOs, product professionals, marketers, growth hackers and operations executives. A broad set of topics, ranging from fundraising to legal issues to growth hacking will be covered. The conference provides a platform that allows you to connect with like-minded people, get fresh ideas, build long-lasting relationships as well as receive honest feedback from people who’ve been riding the rollercoaster for years. Attendees have the opportunity to listen to various key notes of CEOs of multi million dollar businesses, to network during the cocktail reception or to attend 1:1 sessions with top VCs.
