VROOM is an exclusive invitation-only fundraising event that unites select tech companies with extraordinary potential, tech executives, and investors such as family offices, high-net-worth individuals and venture capitalists.
Monaco is known to be one of the best places in the world for this type of event, where there is a very close rapport between investors and entrepreneurs (mentoring is usually the way forwards). Generally, they all meet up in relatively small circles, allowing for a real chance of getting down to the important details and advice often needed by the young entrepreneurs or startup companies seeking help in their growth.
This event took place in Monaco’s prestigious Fairmont Hotel on 7 October 2016.
