Another Engaged Investment Conference is here!
The Engagement Investment Conference is a one-day event that hosts famous speakers, such as experienced business angels and other experts. They all will talk about investing in startups. This year we aim to support the growth of the European venture capital ecosystem.
DEPO Ventures is organizing another Engaged Investments Conference, the only place you can hear startup enthusiasts and investors speak in one place. This is biggest event of the year, and we strongly recommend you attend. We had tremendous success in previous years when we gathered over 100 business angels and people interested in startup investment. This year we are organizing our conference in partnership with SWC Summit.

SWC Summit is 2 days event with both local V4 round and Continental Finale happening in Prague, Czech Republic, live streaming & pitching to all enthusiasts on the Old Continent and around the world.

What do Startup World Cup & Summit and Engaged Investments have in common?
They cooperate because they are interconnected and complementary thematically. By purchasing a ticket to the Startup World Cup & Summit (SWCS), you have free participation in the Engaged Investment conference, which will take place on the eve of the big SWCS. Both events take place offline in Prague. SWC also online as a hybrid. In terms of content, the Engaged Investments conference is mainly for investors.
What will the V4 regional final at Engaged Investments look like?
The Engaged Investment conference will host the regional finals of startups from the V4 countries (Czechia, Poland, Hungary, Slovakia), organized by SWCS. Startups undergo a "pitch", i.e., a business presentation in front of a jury, which will select the best startup, that will compete in European Continental Finale, which will be a day later, i.e., on October 6 at SWCS. The winner will receive half a million dollars and a ticket to the Grand Finale in Silicon Valley.
At the same time, there will be workshops on investing in startups from current investors or experts in the field.
We really had fun last time ...
