Local to Global: How 4 VCs Win Abroad and at Home

Venture capital activity has traditionally been hyper local; startups tended to grow and operate in select ecosystems that offered access to a robust number of early-stage investors. In a world where capital and ideas are fluid, that is changing.

Globalization is impacting venture capital and the investors poised to take advantage of an interconnected world are not only thinking globally but acting globally as well.

For forward thinking firms, their limited partner base is international, their managing partners have global experience, and they are networking and investing in founders in both a primary home market and secondary international cities.

This panel will highlight and explore how four venture funds are thinking and acting globally both tactically and strategically.
