West & East Venture Night

BeGlobe is thrilled to announce the return of its renowned annual WEST & EAST VENTURE NIGHT set to take place in Lisbon on November 14, 2023. This year, the event promises to be bigger and more impactful than ever before, gathering unicorn founders, venture capitalists and tech enthusiasts at the exquisite Palazzo El Ninho.

6th West & East Venture Party, as usual, offers a platform for discussing upcoming trends and fostering extensive networking opportunities, showcasing the synergy between visionary entrepreneurs and investment leaders. Since 2017, BeGlobe has upheld its tradition of hosting the “WEST & EAST VENTURE NIGHT” during Web Summit, and it has become an exclusive gathering of the tech community with over 2500 members.

The event’s idea revolves around creating an exclusive gathering for venture capitalists and late stage startups. In a relaxed setting, attendees will engage in discussions about upcoming tech investment trends for the upcoming year. Additionally, they will have the opportunity to showcase their new funds and attract limited partners (LPs) through presentations and networking sessions.

We are proud to have the support of our partner for this year’s event — Sumsub, a global verification platform, is hosting an interactive media dinner that will delve into the captivating world of AI trends and the alarming challenges posed by deepfake technology. This event will feature exclusive internal insights shared by Pavel Goldman-Kalaydin, Head of AI & ML at Sumsub, and Nicole Alexander, Global head of marketing at Meta, joined by the top industry experts. The discussion will be chaired by Mike Butcher, editor-at-large of TechCrunch and founder of The Europas and Pathfounders.

Introducing a new format: West & East Venture Night presents reverse pitching!

This year our event will change the usual format: representatives of funds will take the stage to present themselves to potential LPs.

It’s a chance for them to shine with their elevator pitches demonstrating the excellence they demand from startups. Hurry up, as we only have 10 spots available! Grab yours today!

  • Purpose: Engage in insightful discussions about the future strategies of European venture capital funds for the upcoming year.
