Accelerate – The BVCA's two-day conference dedicated to Venture and Growth Equity at the stunning Bafta event space in central London, in partnership with UKBAA. Innovation, creativity, and expertise will be brought together under one umbrella event for everyone, from founders to funds, start-ups to scale-ups, providing a chance to network and connect with a like-minded crowd in a relaxed and informal atmosphere. Day 1 will focus on Seed to Series A, with Day 2 focusing on late-stage Venture to Growth Equity.

Attend sessions across the two days for the latest thinking on the geopolitical picture and supply chain security, access to capital, deep tech, diversity, ESG and more, with intimate firesides, thought-leading keynotes and intelligence-squared style debates. Hear from innovative entrepreneurs, dynamic management teams and experienced investors as they share their insights on what it takes to succeed in today’s environment.

The total of funds available to fund managers for future European investments (dry powder) plus the amount of funds already invested in Europe (at cost) and not yet divested. It does not include the uncalled capital post investment period. In the event that you do not invest in Europe but have an investment team in the UK then the funds available to your UK investment team, and invested by the team would apply.
