Growceanu Calls Active and Prospective Angels to Invest in Moonicorns 2023

  • Growceanu Angel Investment organizes its first Invest in Moonicorns event
  • The event is meant for active and prospective angel investors in Romania and the CEE region
  • The date is October 27-28th, and the place is Timișoara, Romania

This October, Growceanu, the well-known Romanian business angel association (invested in Onchochain, among others), organizes its first Invest in Moonicorns event. It aims at becoming the biggest get-together for business angels and HNWI (high net worth individuals) in Romania and the CEE region.

On October 27-28th, Faber Center Timișoara will welcome angel investors and other HNWIs willing to share insights and learn more about the ongoing and prospective trends in angel investment. The main goal of the event is to spotlight this type of investment to more potential angels.

According to the Knight Frank Global Wealth Sizing Model report, Romania counts over 91,000 HNWIs. At that, only about 1% of them show standing interest in angel investment, i.e. investing in tech companies with high growth potential.

As for the term ‘moonicorn,’ this is how Growceanu chooses to describe tech startups that value over USD 1B and got their investment specifically from business angels. They are like the regular unicorns but are much less known.

Speakers and Agenda

The covered topics will follow the investment logic of startups as an asset class:

  • The place of startups in an investment portfolio
  • The most convenient ways to invest in tech companies
  • Startup evaluation
  • Decision-making in venture investments
  • Successful examples
  • The CEE and Romanian tech entrepreneurship ecosystems in the European context, and its perspectives and ambitions

In addition to the Growceanu’s representatives, the invited and confirmed speakers so far include:

For additional illustration, the main program will be complemented by the startup pitching session. The startups willing to pitch before angel investors, including potential ones, are welcome to apply here.

The second day of the event will be entirely dedicated to leisure and networking. It will include guided tours in Timișoara Old City and the Brancusi Exhibition.
