Description

Tech Sister Cities by Dispatches Europe brings American private equity investor Jonathan Blue, chairman and managing director of Blue Equity, to Eindhoven on September 12 for Eyes Wide Open: How American Investors See the World.

Tech Sister Cities is a tech talent, capital and knowledge exchange program that connects midwestern cities in the U.S. to the Netherlands.

This inaugural event, funded by a grant from the U.S. Embassy in The Hague, focuses on the discussion of capital from the U.S., where there are more risk-tolerant investors, to the Netherlands where risk capital is in short supply.

This event will be an introduction to the American investment approach by a private equity player who’s done deals all over the world. Your startup might not be ready for private equity, but successful new businesses have a habit of growing faster than you planned. So, this will be your chance to understand what getting a serious investment entails, and what the trends are in PE.

Jonathan also will talk about the risk-capital continuum that starts with angels and includes venture capitalists.


Finally, Jonathan is willing to look at your one-pagers/executive summaries. If you would like him to review your executive summary, please forward to terry@dispatcheseurope.com so Jonathan has time to review before the event.

We welcome all entrepreneurs with startups and scale-ups, investors, community leaders, mentors, MBA students and those embedded in the Dutch startup ecosystem.

There will be networking, drinks and snacks at The Colour Kitchen, just steps from the Conference Center on High Tech Campus, from 16:30-18:00 before the event. Please stop by and say hello to Jonathan and meet others in the Dutch startup ecosystem.

And last but not least, thank you to our supporters: U.S. Embassy in The Hague, High Tech Campus and Eindhoven Airport.
