Luxembourg Venture Capital breakfast in Berlin


Luxembourg is a well known hub for private equity investment across Europe. What few fund managers and entrepreneurs actually know, is that it is also a particularly interesting location to establish VC funds. This year LPEA decided to tweak its traditional private equity roadshow and address venture capital managers directly in Europe’s trendy start-up capital: Berlin!

Join us in this event to discover the Luxembourg fund structuring toolbox and its dynamic VC scene, home to the European Investment Fund and a few other successful VC players.

About Luxembourg

Luxembourg is well known for its solid financial centre which success is founded on the social and political stability of the Grand Duchy and on a modern legal and regulatory framework that is continuously updated.

Over the years, specific regulatory frameworks have been created for alternative investment funds and venture capital investment funds which, combined with Luxembourg’s openness to the world, has attracted many private equity firms and specialist service providers from all over the world.

LPEA, as the trade association for Private Equity and Venture Capital Players in Luxembourg, is hosting this roadshow to present the country and the conditions which have already attracted some of the major international PE firms to set office in Luxembourg. We expect you to learn first-hand testimonials from some of our players as well as from the service providers who, together with the investors, build a strong and reliable ecosystem.
