Last night I attended the Young Person networking event hosted by the BVCA (British Venture Capital Association). Lots of young people, but none of them in Venture. Every single person that I spoke to, except Stephen Wilson from Unilever Ventures, was with Private Equity/Buy-out Funds.
I know the BVCA get tired of me complaining about the same thing every time: where are the VCs and why are you not called the BPEA (British Private Equity Association)?
If you’re under 35 and working in VC in the UK, drop me a line at techbytes [at] mac [dot] com and we’ll set up our own networking event.
