TechBBQ is back, bigger and better than ever. Known for it’s annual summit focused on tech entrepreneurship and innovation, the newest strategic initiative is the “Nordic LP Forum” on September 12, 2023 in Copenhagen.
TechBBQ has primarily been focusing on venture capital, entrepreneurship, start-ups, and scale-ups, and has become a well-known conference for that. The new initiative will build the bridge between capital holders and the important ecosystems in fostering strong entrepreneurial initiatives.
The aim is now expanding to focus on the entire value chain spanning the upstream source of capital that flows in venture capital from Limited Partners (LPs) and into early-stage companies.
The Nordic LP Forum is a one-day meeting of 150+ institutional investors and alternative fund managers from the region and Europe.
Attendees will comprise of the following LPs:
These institutions represent a significant part of the capital that flows in startups and scaleups.
TechBBQ has engaged Global Family Office & Family Business Expert Martin Roll as the conference host and moderator.
Martin Roll is an experienced global business strategist, senior advisor, and mentor to Fortune 500 companies, Asian firms, family-owned businesses, and family offices. He is the author of forthcoming management books “Family Office Strategy” and “Family Business Strategy”.
Martin Roll represents comprehensive global knowledge about the strategic themes of the forum and has been actively involved in designing and delivering the new initiative.
“I’m super excited to be the host and moderator for the Nordic LP Forum. It is the inaugural forum and an innovative and important add-on to TechBBQ. It is here to stay and will evolve over the next few years. The Nordic LP Forum can become the most important gathering in Europe as I see it”, says Martin Roll.
He adds: “I engage with family offices and institutional investors globally, and it will be exciting to bring a global perspective into a Nordic context”.
Over the last few years, there has been a big global trend where investors have increasingly allocated more capital to alternative assets like venture capital and early-stage companies.
“Family offices are a good illustration of this economic shift as they have become a very active partner in the global venture capital and entrepreneurship space. Family offices and the business families representing them are typically long-term investors who seek a balanced return based on broader definitions of success, similar to pension and sovereign funds,” says Martin Roll.
The Nordic LP Forum has been created to attract capital into the Nordic venture space and ultimately become part of the equation to invest massive amounts into the technologies that will solve the issues we are facing globally. Large investments will enable iconic Nordic technology leaders to emerge.
The driving force behind the Nordic LP Forum is Michael Bak, Head of Investor Relations at TechBBQ.
“I’m super excited about the first-ever Nordic LP Forum at TechBBQ. The Nordic LP Forum has been created to attract capital into the Nordic venture space and ultimately become part of the equation to invest massive amounts into technologies that will solve the issues we are facing globally,” says Michael Bak.
