TRANSFORMED. The conference agenda and speakers are put together as such to reveal insights into how some of the biggest organisations are going about investing, from real business use cases to success stories and where the challenges may lie.



NETWORKING. It's an invaluable part of events and where real value often presents itself, meeting those who are facing the same challenges and coming together to solve similar issues. Our agendas feature numerous opportunities throughout the day to meet like minded folk from various industries and backgrounds. We have previously had extremely positive feedback from delegates who have found long lasted business relationships with those who they wouldn't normally meet from opposite industries and largely seeking out the same solutions to industry wide transformation sticking points.

Oszkó Péter gazdasági szakember, kockázatitőke-befektető. Karrierjét az ELTE jogi karának elvégzésével párhuzamosan a KPMG-nél kezdte, 7 évvel az egyetem befejezése után a Deloitte partner pozícióban vette fel, majd 2 évvel később a Deloitte Hungary elnök-vezérigazgatója lett. 2009-ben a technokrata kormány idején Magyarország pénzügyminisztere volt a 2010-es választásokig. 2010-ben csatlakozott az OTP csoport kockázati tőkealap-kezelőjéhez vezérigazgatói pozícióban.

Az elmúlt 5 év alatt az OXO csoport egy több mint harminc céget számláló portfóliót épített fel, melyben egyaránt szerepelnek korai és növekedési fázisban lévő technológiai startupok is, és kivásárlásokat is megkezdték.

A megtett bejelentések szerint így a dinamikusan növekvő technológiai portfóliót a csoport nyilvános piacra viszi.

alapító, managing partner
Vespucci Partners

Júlia a Vespucci Partners alapításakor azt tűzte ki legfontosabb célként, hogy a Szilikon-völgyben tevékenykedő tőkealapok működéséből minél többet átemeljen a magyar székhelyű alapkezelőbe és hidat teremtsen a közép-keleti-európai startupok és az USA startup ökoszisztémája között.

Júlia háttere nagy szerepet játszott abban, hogy megfogalmazódjon benne ez a cél. A tanulmányait három egyetemen végezte három különböző országban. A Budapesti Corvinus Egyetem angol nyelvű Nemzetközi Gazdálkodás szakán végzett, és ebből fél évet Münchenben az ISM-en és két évet a los angelesi University of Southern California üzleti karán tanult. Ezek után a kaliforniai Group11 tőkealapnál dolgozott, melynek köszönhetően mély betekintést kapott az amerikai startup ökoszisztéma központi világába.

Mikor visszatért Magyarországra ezzel, társaival megalapították a Safeskin nevű startupot. Ezáltal, a kinti tapasztalatokat kiegészítve, azt is megtapasztalta, hogy milyen az ökoszisztéma startup oldalán lenni és bevonni tőkét a hazai piacon. Ezeket a perspektívákat egybe gyúrták három új partnerének a szemléletmódjával, és így született meg a Vespucci Partners.

A Vespucci Partners új perspektívából közelíti meg a startupokat és az ökoszisztéma fejlődését. Ténylegesen okostőkével segítik a portfóliójukba kiválasztott cégeket. Elsősorban olyan startupokat keresnek, melyek erős technológiai újdonsággal, valós globális növekedési potenciállal rendelkeznek és alkalmasak az úgynevezett hibrid startup modell felépítésére.

Ezek Magyarországról induló projektek, melyeknek a Vespucci segít a befektetés pillanatától abban, hogy megvessék a lábukat, illetve elindítsák értékesítésüket az amerikai piacon, majd onnan vonjanak be következő körös befektetőket. Tőkealap-kezelőjük a „fordított hibrid” startupokat is kifejezetten támogatja. Itt olyan cégekre gondolnak, amelyek az amerikai piacról indulnak, ottani értékesítési lábbal, de a fejlesztésüket pedig Magyarországra helyezik.
