VENTURE CAPITAL FORUM

Reverse Elevator Pitch

The VCF Venture Capital Forum is a unique forum for startups and investors in the heart of Germany and Europe. Originally founded in 2011 by the Wirtschaftsjunioren Frankfurt, we host the first Reverse Elevator Pitch. European VCs share insights and valuable first-hand experience with interested startups and ecosystem shapers. The focus here is on networking, perfect-fit matchmaking and funding.

The idea

Insights

Once the other way around.  Investors provide insights into the world of venture capital and their investment strategies. In a private, almost family atmosphere, the VCs have direct contact with our guests, startups, entrepreneurs, consultants, bankers, business angels and fellow investors.

Network

Building Bridges. Connecting global trends, national and international markets and movers. Since 2011, the VCF Venture Capital Forum has been an integral part of the scene in Frankfurt and the Rhine-Main region.

Financing

Facilitate access and represent interests. The Venture Capital Forum brings together VCs and pre-selected startups and provides a space to establish valuable contacts and relationships. Because: easy access to talent and capital is a crucial point for a vibrant innovative corporate culture.

We create a meeting space

The Event

In the heart of Frankfurt, in the representative locations of our sponsor, the 2-4 times a year events of the Venture Capital Forum take place.
