Dear EstVCA members, associate members and friends


It has been an extremely busy September with Livonia Partners announcing its new record-size fund, EfTEN Capital completing its largest acquisition to date and our annual landmark event - the Baltic VCA Summit 2021 - successfully held in Vilnius with so many of our members participating. 


It was great to welcome Siena Secondary Fund as our new member and witness the launch of Change Ventures' Baltic Startup Report update. We also held three seminars in September and are excited to move towards the election of EstVCA new Management Board - the election & celebration event taking place on October 21 at 18:00. Looking forward to seeing you all there! 


With best wishes,

EstVCA team

ÄRIPÄEV: Riskiraha saate episood #6 - Siena Secondary Fund


RISKIRAHA uues saates on külas meie värskeim liige Siena Secondary Fund: Eestis tegutsevaid riskikapitaliettevõtteid tutvustavas Äripäeva raadio saatesarjas “Riskiraha” on sel korral fookuses kaubamärgi Siena ümber koondunud tegijad. Lisaks nii-öelda traditsioonilistele riskiinvesteeringute tegemisele tõi Siena hiljuti turule ka uut tüüpi ehk järelturuinvesteeringuid tegeva fondi ehk “secondary fund”. Saatekülalised on Siena partnerid Rain Tamm ja Rando Rannus.





ÄRIPÄEV: EfTENi United Property Fundi on kolme kuuga investeerinud üle 1800 investori kokku enam kui 5 miljonit eurot


Praegu ostavad investorid fondi osakuid rohkem taskusse, sest fond tuleb börsile alles järgmise aasta mais - või varem, juhul kui kokku saab piisavalt esinduslik portfell, nagu ütleb EfTEN United Property fondijuht Kristjan Tamla. Praegu märkides on eeliseid, aga kindlasti tuleb varuda ka kannatlikkust.
