Credentials

Wojciech Walniczek
VC Leaders is a unique program in CEE bringing together professional investors, advisors and corporates interested in venture capital. It creates a forum for thought and experience exchange, presenting and discussing various perspectives as well as building strong network. All in fun and open atmosphere. Highly recommended!

Paweł Smółka, Ph.D.
In the Venture Capital industry know-how is as important as know-whom. The VCLeaders program gives you both practical knowledge about VC best practices and supporting community. I strongly recommend participation in the VCLeaders program to all the people interested in supporting the Polish startup ecosystem with “smart” money.

WHO ARE WE

The best way to predict your future is to create it. For VCs it starts with building a team of people who know how to master the VC game. Understanding unique features of the fund’s life cycle, investment process, and building relations with startups is quite challenging. This is why decided to fill the gap with VCLeaders by educating the next generation of VC investors in CEE who will have a deep understanding of their job.
