Next generation of investors visiting Finland – 11 student-run Venture Capital funds from Asia, USA and Europe

Wave Ventures organizes first international get-together of student-run venture capital funds in Helsinki, Finland. 30 student investors arrive from USA, Europe and Asia, from 11 different student-run venture capital funds. Among participators are for example Oxford Seed Fund from England, Protégé Ventures from Singapore and Redhawk Ventures from USA. During the week guests will get to know Finnish startup-scene and visit for example Startup Sauna, Maki.vc, Inventure, Lifeline Ventures and TESI. Week wraps up into world’s leading startup event, Slush.

Student-run venture capital funds are pre-seed and early stage funds and their teams consist completely or mostly of students. There has been great discussion about diversity and therefore young people believe that they can observe future trends with different perspective.

Event has been organised by Pauliina Meskanen and Julia Jutila from Wave Ventures.
