Investors pitching to start-ups? Now there’s an idea we can get behind. Milo Yiannopoulos is intrigued about a new invitation-only investment conference – and The Kernel offers three free tickets to our subscribers.
I’m intrigued by a new invitation-only conference coming to London on 24 April, with the intention of flipping the traditional entrepreneur to investor model on its head and getting venture capitalists to pitch to a hand-picked selection of entrepreneurs. It’s called Capital on Stage.
Kernel columnist and partner at DFJ Esprit Nic Brisbourne wrote on his blog last month: “Arjen Strijker, the conference organiser, and I had a meeting of minds when we spoke last week about the importance of demystifying venture capital. It is one of the reasons I write this blog, it is why he started his conference and it is why I’m promoting it now.”
I’m a firm believer in curated events, which generally provide a much higher-quality experience and which enable entrepreneurs much better access to the investors present. The takeaways from such events are generally vastly superior to free-for-alls where no one gets to have a proper conversation and speakers are hurriedly ushered away after their talks.
Kernel subscriber offer
I’m told that there’s still time to apply to be invited, should you wish to get involved. But, for Kernel subscribers who want to improve their chances, you can fill out the form below. We’ve secured three places to the conference, to be allocated randomly to entrepreneurs on The Kernel’s books. (If you’re not a Kernel subscriber, you can fix that here before filling out the form.)
We hope to see you there.
