#PreMoney

A one-day event about the most disruptive strategies, models, & technologies for the future of venture capital

AN INVITE-ONLY EVENT
ON THE FUTURE OF VENTURE CAPITAL

Venture Capital is undergoing a renaissance. New platforms, models & strategies for early-stage funding are rapidly transforming an ecosystem in desperate need of innovation. Over the last 10 years, venture returns have been dismal, early-stage funds have withered, and public markets have beaten private funds to a pulp. Ironically, an institution created to drive scalability was doing anything but—and it became venture capital that lacked innovation and efficiency.

 

For 200+ accredited & active investors only, PreMoney is a one-day conference, produced by 500 Startups, about the most disruptive strategies, models, & technologies for the future of venture capital. Featuring the world’s most forward-thinking investors, PreMoney will provide attendees with insight and tactics for building successful, scalable venture portfolios that are just as innovative as the companies they finance.

 

For the Bahrain event, we will bring notable folks from Silicon Valley and the MENA region together to talk about the innovation & disruption underway and how it’s changing & re-shaping the local market.
