The Emerging Venture Landscape in Europe. March 18th.

A quick update on our upcoming drinks event. We have 85 registered places, with capacity for 110 people max…

‘The 3rd BLN CEO Tales and Networking Drinks’ event will be held on the evening of 18th March from 6.00 pm at the recently opened offices of Taylor Wessing, 5 New Street Square, London, EC4A 3TW. Our subject for the evening, the Emerging VC Investment Landscape, and the speakers, seem to have piqued the interest of the venture community alongside some of the more established entrepreneurs in the market.

We currently have a great line up of confirmed investor attendees including: 4iP, Accel, Advent, Amadeus, Archangel, Aster Capital, Balderton, Cambridge Capital Group, Delta Partners, DFJ Esprit, DN Capital, Eden, Gresham Capital, Grow VC, Hotspur Capital, Index, NESTA, Pentech, Pond, SEP, Sofinnova, Solon Ventures, SVB & TLcom Capital Partners.

Featured speakers include: Aster (closed E70 million 2nd fund in January); Sofinnova (closed E260 million fund in February), and SVB who have been providing debt finance to venture backed companies in Europe since 2004. As well as an evening of peer networking with CEOs, this is an excellent opportunity to meet VC and PE investors.

Video Interviews: We are using this opportunity to run video interviews with some of our attendees to feature on our forthcoming BLN video channel. As well as being a great way to showcase some of the most interesting high growth businesses in the UK, we hope this will offer some of our attendees an opportunity to spread the news about their businesses to a wider audience. If you are interested in participating, please indicate your interest when you register to attend.

REGISTER: We have 30 remaining places and every event we have run so far in 2010 has sold out so we would encourage you to reserve your place quickly. You can find out a little more about our speakers and register here. On registration, please use the code ‘BLN241’ if you would like to bring a guest, as your guest, at no charge.

Other events: Do take a look at our upcoming events. The next few months see a hectic schedule of activity and we have discussion dinners lined up around Exits, Advertising, Video, Future of Publishing, Cleantech, Gaming and mobile amongst others so there should be something for everyone…

We hope to see you on the night. With best regards,

Mark Littlewood
