What is VCLeaders?

VCLeaders is the educational platform for the Venture Capital World. Our goal is to shape the best market practices and help VCs in their journey to become the best version of themselves. We offer educational programs and resources for professionals who want to improve their understanding of the venture capital ecosystem.

We  connect We  share We  inspire

Why are we doing this?

Striving to inspire

Education is not the filling of a pail, but the lighting of a fire. With our Program and Resources we want to spark that fire.

Promoting a sharing culture

We believe that the learning process accelerates when people share their stories with other people.

Building bridges

We want to be the connecting tissues. Just as neurons need synapses to communicate properly, we want to enable the connection between VC communities. We foster tailored introductions between LPs, VCs, entrepreneurs, and multiplicators.

Passionate about helping people

VCLeaders started out of a genuine passion for helping people achieve their goals. Seeing members of our community achieve their goals fuels our passion even further!

What they say about us

It's truly unique! VCLeaders brings together people with so many different perspectives. The project itself is planned in the smallest details - from location to the speakers, everything was top notch. If you're looking for an amazing networking opportunity and a great platform to exchange views - do apply!

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!

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.

This program will quickly push you up the VC learning curve. A great way to learn the intricacies of the industry from leading practitioners in a thorough, accessible, and involving way.

A lot of useful knowledge about the VC market presented by professionals in an open and fun atmosphere. Great networking opportunity and a lot of common ideas which goes far beyond the program. Recommend to everyone interested in VC.

VCLeaders goes beyond theory deep into very practical aspects of being the Venture Capitalists without having to move to Silicon Valley! I highly recommend this program!

VC Leaders operates as a bone fide catalyst. It is consistent to the name and nature of the beast, being intensive, exhaustive and very rewarding at the same time. A must in our landscape!

It's a very holistic program, and an opportunity to expand your knowledge, meet high profile investors from European VC funds and get an insight into "behind the scenes" of the industry. I found this experience super practical!

The VC Leaders course convinces by its focus on the practical management of a VC business, its line-up of distinguished speakers from all areas of the field and its international group of participants. Undoubtedly, it is the perfect place for everyone who wants to take over a leading function in the VC world.

From a stock exchange’s perspective, a strong pre-IPO ecosystem requires sophisticated Venture Capital investors. VCLeaders made a strong contribution to this by launching their education program with a well-structured curriculum, excellent speakers and open discussions.
