About the event

2021 broke records for capital available in Europe — but that doesn’t change the fact that fundraising is hard. So when it comes to investors, what separates the good from the bad? This Sifted Talks will explore how founders and finance leaders can decode the cryptic world of VC — and prepare for that all-important pitch.

We'll be discussing

  1. Investor meetings: What metrics do you need to master to stand out? How do you know you’ve found a match?
  2. Avoiding time-wasters: How long should a due diligence process really take?
  3. Friendly doesn’t mean funding: How can founders decode investors’ mysterious signals?
