Luxembourg VC Seminar in Berlin

5 June 2019 | Festsaal und Festraum, Humboldt, Graduate School, Luisenstraße 56, 10117 Berlin

The Luxembourg Private Equity & Venture Capital Seminar will visit Berlin to present the Luxembourg “toolbox” for VC fund managers. Widely recognised as the European platform for private equity funds, Luxembourg provides the flexibility required by venture capital funds, specially those  operating in a cross-border context.

Our session in Berlin will welcome testimonials of VC funds operating in Luxembourg and an interactive panel that will explore the practical aspects of setting up your own VC fund in Luxembourg.
