“We’re looking for ordinary people that have done extraordinary things”, says Vikram Sasi, from Dreamers VC, who will be here at the upcoming Global Ventures Summit in November.

Europe is becoming a focus to many venture capitalists, as they want to create a more global footprint. “Silicon Valley is not the only source of innovation” - a thought echoed by all the VCs we spoke to.

If you’re thinking of approaching Dreamers VC, they are looking for three things: team, product and market, but it’s “really about the founder and their mental stamina”.

Ultimately, they’re looking for “ordinary people that have done extraordinary things”.  How one proves that is another question.

What is the Global Ventures Summit?

The Global Ventures Summit (GVS) is a world-class event where high-profile VCs meet strong start-up ventures who want to scale, and need both money and specialised knowledge to do so. This is the first time it will be held in Europe, as agreed by the Luxembourg House of Fintech and Parkpine Capital, the Silicon Valley-based Centure Capital firm.

Who should attend?

Tailored to those keen to converse along the interface of money and ideas: venture capital and entrepreneurs, but with the list of speakers and people you might bump into, it will be an exciting place to be, whatever your metier.

When / Where 

GVS will take place on 20 and 21 November in Maison du Savoir in Esch-sur-Alzette.
