1/ "How to fight Europe's toxicity to build unicorns" with Balthazar de Lavergne, Partner @TheFamily 🇪🇺 🚀
Europe isn’t Silicon Valley - don’t be fooled by the number of accelerators, incubators and other things aiming to help startups across Europe. But any entrepreneur from a European country who recognizes the weaknesses and strengths of the local environment can push forward....🙏
2/ "How to Build a Unicorn Company in Europe" with Adam Marchik ✅ ✈️
Adam Marchick, CEO and co-founder of VoiceLabs.co, a leading analytics service for the Voice ecosystem. Previously co-founder of Kahuna with $60M in funding from Sequoia Capital, Adam has spent years building software for Oracle and doing investments as part of the Bain Capital Ventures team 🔥
For every dollar he invested, 3.2 dollars were returned… So you can trust this guy’s a real unicorn spotter! 💎

About TheFamily: We're a long-term strategic investor that empowers entrepreneurs through education, services, and capital. Founded 4 years ago in France, we now have a portfolio of 300 startups. Raised 200 M € collectively for them so far. You may know some of them, like Algolia, Save.co, CaptainTrain, and Menu Next Door.And now we’ve opened new offices in London and Berlin.
The good thing about Berlin is that no other place in Europe combines the 3 main ingredients so well:
- Talented entrepreneurs, developers & designers from eastern, southern and northern Europe; - A vibrant and easygoing lifestyle - way cheaper than London, way more open than Paris 😉 - A cosmopolitan and welcoming city that lets you feel like you’re part of it, even if you weren’t born here.
