It is always a pleasure watching the Austrian entrepreneurial community grow, and even more so when the growth is internationally focused. With this in mind, we are looking forward to February 16th, when our partner 0100 Conferences is hosting the biggest VC & PE conference in the CEE and Vienna. This is an investor oriented conference, with 70 speakers and more than 350 attendees, presenting the greatest networking opportunity for those wishing to meet the top investors from both Western and Eastern Europe. 0100 Conferences is a rapidly expanding conference business setting up VC & PE focused conferences around Europe, aiming to increase pan-european relationships and investments.

What to expect

In October, 0100 Conference hosted their first Nordic conference bringing in top international investors (for a quick video click here), and it will be exciting to see many return for the Vienna Conference. The venue for Vienna will be the Hilton Vienna Stadtpark, where we are looking forward to meeting Olivier Schuepbach, General Partner at Partech Ventures, Ralph Guenther, Partner at Pantheon, Uli Grabenwarter, Deputy Director – Equity Investments at EIF, Claudio Siniscalco Managing Director at DB Private Equity, and many more (for a full list of speakers click here). The quality of speakers is where 0100 Conferences really shine, and exploring synergies with the Austrian investment scene will bring a lot of value to the local ecosystem.

Programme & aaia special

The conference is scheduled to start with registration at 08:30 and after the opening panel at 09:35 splits into three streams, each focusing on various impact areas within the pan-european investment world. Here topics such as exit markets, brexit impact, and VC’s in the DACH region will be explored. There are of course regular networking breaks between every panel and after lunch all guests are gathered again for the keynote. The conference wraps up at 17:00 with cocktails and some final networking, giving guests time for further networking and timely returns home.

Looking forward to networking with the 0100 Conference team and all the speakers and guests in February. On top of that we are happy to announce that AAIA members have access to complimentary tickets and special discounts for the event. See you all there in February!
