Come and join us for the Alumni Ventures pitching event at Balderton Capital!
Join us to meet with amazing entrepreneurs who are currently fundraising!
In the past events, the event hosted several successful start-ups, some of which have now raised impressive Series A. Some examples include:
- Freachly, an influencer marketplace led by Steffen Allesch (HEC Alumnus), secured a seven figure Series A funding in Jul-18 after raising a seed round in summer 2016 with the help of HEC Alumni Ventures.
- Luko, a Fintech disrupting the home insurance market in France, which raised €2m in May-18 from Xavier Niel, eFounders and other business angels
- Factmata, an artificial intelligence company for automated content scoring and verification, targeting the proliferation of fake and misleading news.
- Other successes include Coaching Assembly, Symaps or SmartBatz.
The event is a chance to meet a selection of outstanding startups from HEC alumni networks handpicked by a committee of venture investors and experts.
We have established deep links with some of European best technical and business alumni networks with a strong emphasis on finding and supporting high growth, disruptive and VC fundable opportunities.
Selected teams will have gone through a rigorous vetting and selection process to ensure you are only presented with the best ones. These amazing early-stage businesses may well be the next European unicorns you don't want to miss!
