The Entrepreneurs' Events Calendar
Welcome to the 2021 edition of the Evolution Capital Technology Entrepreneurs Events Programme, a series of bespoke networking events designed to bring TMT business owners together.
Experts at unlocking hidden value
Evolution Capital is proud to have advised hundreds of entrepreneurs over the years, helping them realise their business objectives. We advise management teams and shareholders of privately-owned and publicly listed businesses on business sales, M&A transactions and raising capital. To date, we have worked on over 75 transactions worth a combined £503m.
However none of this would be possible without connecting people - and that is what our events programme aims to achieve.
Our seminars, workshops, industry luncheons and sporting events - all at best-in-class venues - will not only offer invaluable advice and insight into the dynamic TMT sector but will also enable entrepreneurs to make long-lasting and fruitful business relationships.
The programme has attracted over 2000 technology business owners since the programme was launched in 2005. We look forward to welcoming you in 2021.
