btov Portfolio Day 2022 in Berlin | "Europe's Moment"


Spreespeicher, Stralauer Allee 2, 10245 Berlin

We are pleased to announce our btov Portfolio Day on September 21, 2022 in Berlin.

These are challenging times, especially for Europe, yet those many challenges come with a lot of opportunities as well. From accelerating the diffusion of clean energy and climate tech to making the backbone of our economy more resilient and digitally connected, we think Europe has the potential to become a true leader on innovation.

That’s why we chose “Europe’s Moment” as this year’s title. 

On the agenda will be keynotes, startup presentations, and enough time for networking and an evening party in  a relaxed atmosphere.  We are so excited to get back together again in person this year, after two years of virtual meetings.

This event will be the perfect opportunity to meet our portfolio companies, the founders, and learn about their ventures. 

We look forward to seeing everyone!

Please contact Farisa for more details.
