It is our pleasure to invite you to our Digital Expert Session on "Differentiating VC Fund Strategies", moderated by Dr Julian Albrecht, Associated Partner at Schnittker Möllmann Partners Partners.
In this session you will gain crucial insights on how VC funds create returns for their Limited Partners (LPs) using different investment scopes: 

  • How do specific investment scopes (sector, region and stage) help funds create above-average returns?
  • Why are the top-performing funds in Europe managed by first-time fund managers?
  • Are some of these strategies particularly interesting for certain types of LPs?
  • How can VC funds generate value for their LPs in addition to financial returns?
