Private Jet Travel - London Venture Capital Conference

A recent blog post by AltAssets reveals that the UK government is reaching out to private equity providing incentives to finance small and medium size business. If you are looking for a new market, the 13th MedTech Investing Europe Conference may be a great venue. MTI Europe is the premier and longest running Medtech investment partnering event in Europe, and is being held October 4th and 5th in London.

Here is an overview to the AltAssets blog , and a link to the blog in its entirety.

Stimulating investment in Europe's small and medium sized businesses (SMEs) is very much on the agenda of Europe's policy-makers, writes Simon Witney of SJ Berwin. Only a few weeks ago, the European Commission launched a discussion paper on its proposals to create a "single market" for European venture funds, aiming to give them access to a "passport", allowing them to raise money from professional investors right across the EU without subjecting them to significant additional regulatory burdens. 

Once again alongside a wide range of companies presenting their latest innovations and investment opportunities to an audience of VCs, healthcare corporates and other investors, the conference will address some of the hottest issues that the medtech sector is currently facing.
Now in its 13th edition, MTI Europe will once again set the agenda for the industry and investment community, with plenary sessions and roundtables aimed to equip delegates with intelligence and advice to succeed in the medtech world.
