Europe’s Leading Tech VC to LP Pitch and Networking Event

Our mission is to make it easier for LPs to find the right European tech VC funds to invest in and for GPs the right investors, by building a community of emerging managers and forward-thinking investors.

 

Live virtual panel: Retail sector

European retail has gloomy forecasts following the large-scale closure of European shops due to the coronavirus pandemic. Private equity has deployed capital into portfolio companies in the sector to assist with cash crunches but faces backlash over claims for government loans and participation in furlough schemes.  Should they divert capital into other rescue missions? At the same time, the consumer sector faced rapid digital transformation, and whilst the corona outbreak sped up this process, other established e-commerce platforms have swooped in to buy distressed retailers to bolster offerings.

Spyro Korsanos, Managing Partner, Fuse Venture Partners

Ravi Thakran, Chairman Emeritus, L Catterton Asia; Founder, L CAPITAL ASIA

Kay-Mok Ku, Managing Partner, Gobi Partners

Moderator: Denise Ko Genovese, Associate Editor, Unquote
