Global marketplaces are creating more value than ever, Adevinta Investment Director Florence Aretz told leading tech entrepreneurs at the EU Startup Summit 2019 in Barcelona.
The flagship event showcases a selection of Europe’s hottest startups, who come together to network and learn.
“At Adevinta, we invest in the marketplaces of tomorrow. We take minority stakes in marketplace startups within our core verticals. We contribute with marketing, data, smart integrations, and expertise gained from being one of the world’s leading marketplace businesses,” Florence told the audience.
EU Startup Summit 2019 brought together 1,200 founders, startup enthusiasts, corporates, angel investors, VCs, and media from across Europe. The two-day summit is a well-known networking event and meeting point for aspiring entrepreneurs and investors, who are aiming to build international tech companies.
Adevinta was able to outline the various ways we help start-ups become successful while explaining what our Ventures Department does. We look for companies with tangible traction, a potential to scale beyond their domestic market, and which we can support with more than simply financial resources.
