WHO WE ARE

VCF Venture Capital Forum is a unique platform for startups and investors in the heart of Germany and Europe. Originally founded by JCI Frankfurt in 2011, it invented the first Reverse Elevator Pitch, where European VCs pitch first-hand insights and valuable experiences to interested startups and shapers of the ecosystem. Strong networking and match-making in terms of funding are characteristics of this format. 


Reverse Elevator Pitch

Venture Capitalists share their insights about the industry and their investment strategies. In a family like private atmosphere the VCs get in direct contact with our guests, startups, entrepreneurs, consultants, bankers, BAs and VC-collegues alike. They share valuable and exclusive insights of their investment strategy and focus as well as private lessons learned. Good time guaranteed!

Network & Knowhow

Building bridges – connecting global mega trends, national and international markets and people. Established in 2011, the VCF Venture Capital Forum enriches the local startup ecosystem in Frankfurt and the RhineMain region, connecting entrepreneurs and establishing a platform for networking and transfer of experience and knowhow.

Future Funding

Already in the past valuable contacts and relationships have been built at our meet ups. Founders met their long-awaited Co-Founders and teams, individuals met their new employer, VCs met high potential startups. In the near future, the Venture Capital Forum will focus on building relationships between VCs and pre-selected startups as the easy access to talent and capital is a crucial point for a vivid innovative entrepreneurial culture.
