The session will be geared towards his experience in VC, the process of raising and founding a VC fund, and an interesting topic that he has recently talked about: "how VC's should stop chasing unicorns and start creating serial entrepreneurs, as European enterprise exits valued at less than €50 million can form the foundation of a strong European startup ecosystem".
