PortfoLion VC’s COVID-Proof Pitch Night 

As one of the largest venture capital and private equity management firms in the CEE region, PortfoLion VC continuously seeks startup companies with innovative, scalable solutions and agile teams to partner up with them and to invest in Seed & Series A rounds.

On the 8th of May, the fund management firm organises its first Virtual Pitch Night that provides an opportunity for startups to pitch their business ideas and get hands-on feedback from successful entrepreneurs and senior investors. Selected startups will be given the chance to present their business model and growth plans, followed by feedback from a professional advisory panel. Successful teams will get on a fast track in PortfoLion VC’s investment process which can result in investments up to EUR 2M.

At the event – organised in collaboration with Startup Europe Networks and PODIM DX – keynote speaker Zach Coelius (Angel Investor, Serial Entrepreneur) talk about how founders can prepare for an economic downturn and uncertain times, exploring what it takes to be a war-time CEO, building resilience, and taking advantage of new opportunities. The keynote will be extended with a panel discussion about the state of fundraising during the COVID-19 crisis with CEE-based entrepreneurs and investors including  Andras Molnar (PortfoLion VC), Gyula Feher (Oktogon Ventures, previously Ustream), Istvan Csanady (Shapr3d)  and Marvin Liao (Early Stage Investor, Tech Executive).
