“Last week I met high-impact entrepreneurs and leaders from the markets of Bulgaria, Spain, Greece and Turkey. It was an excellent event and we would be delighted in General Catalyst to be given the chance to participate in such an event once again, as we increase our investments in European companies of all levels,” Niko Bonatsos said, Managing Director, General Catalyst.
“We are fully aware that it is of great importance for the entrepreneurs to be connected as early as possible with global investment schemes. Endeavor is a global organization with a best-in-class funds’ network leading investments in innovation worldwide. In Europe in particular, we recognize that it is extremely significant to considerably increase the contacts and actions of leading investment schemes in the next years. Taking this into consideration, we plan to organize a lot more roadshows in the near future, aiming to include all the global funds that have presence in Europe,” Ilia Tzortzopoulou pointed out, Entrepreneur Selection & Growth Manager, Endeavor Greece.
