Partnering With Western European PE/VC Funds

Region: Europe
21 March 2024

Primary and secondary exits to Western European private equity (PE) funds are on the rise. Co-investments by Czech PE and, mainly, venture capital (VC) funds into Western European assets are becoming increasingly frequent given the number of growing VC investments. Czech family offices and private investors find the Czech market too small to place all their available financial resources locally. Return expectations from CEE investments do not materially exceed those from Western European markets. As a result, many players in the Czech market find themselves dealing more often with their Western European colleagues. 

Partnered with the Czech Private Equity & Venture Capital Association (CVCA), we would be delighted if you accept this invitation to join our business breakfast.

Why should you participate?

During our event, we will present current trends in Western European PE and VC, exploring how these trends translate into the CEE region.

  • Practical Focus – What to keep in mind if you want to exit your business or VC investment to a Western European PE house?
  • Knowledge Sharing – We bring top-class, UK-based partners, Head of our PE practice, Paul Mann, and Head of our VC practice, Andrea Cropley, to share their broad experience and market insights. Andrea and Paul will be joined by Prague-based Petr Kolář, senior advisor, to discuss how public policy support adds value to investment transactions, and Radek Janeček, corporate partner, to provide local perspective.
  • Interactive Discussions – Engage and ask questions directly.
  • Professional Networking – Connect with other professionals in your field.
  • Enjoyable Setting – Delightful breakfast in the comfortable surroundings of our office.

We are very much looking forward to meeting with you!
