Want to keep in touch?

The Bayerische Venture Capital Akademie is organized by b-to-v, in close cooperation with BayStartUP and supported by the Bayerisches Staatsministeriums für Wirtschaft und Medien, Energie und Technologie and BakerTillyRoelfs. The Akademie will take place at the Alpenhof Hotel in Murnau, a remote and secluded hotel south of Munich. The event is hosted in German.

The Bayerische Venture Capital Akademie is designed to support and foster the start-up eco-system in Bavaria and, more generally, in Central Europe.
In particular, the Akademie addresses private and corporate investors who plan to do direct investments in start-up companies or young growth companies.

We will talk

    • about the opportunities and risks of start-up investments,
    • about the significance of an investment strategy,
    • about the importance (and potential sources) of a broad deal-flow of investment opportunities,
    • about tools to analyze your deal-flow efficiently, effectively and systematically – - and about mistakes during the screening process,
    • about ways to structure the due diligence process,
    • about the investment structure of direct investments in start-ups,
    • about about term sheets, term sheet terminology, and the advantages and shortcomings of risk-reduction measures,
    • about the investmentphase (after the initial investment) and activities of investors during that phase,
    • about investment experiences of investors (what can go wrong?),
    • and about many more aspects related to start-up investments.

The Akademie does not claim to provide recipes for successful investments. We do not believe in a “silver bullet” that makes start-up investments “safe”. Start-up investments are risky by nature, and always will be. The Akademie simply attempts to explain the tools and approaches used by professional early-stage investors.  And the Akademie gives room to discuss these tools and approaches. The Akademie does not only address entrepreneurs and investors who plan to do their first start-up investments, it also addresses entrepreneurs and investors who already finalized their first start-up investments.

Interested b-to-v members and guests are kindly invited to contact Morena Botta for further information.
