The discussion, moderated by Matteo Rizzi (FTS GROUP) featuring Lucia Rigo (Generation Investment Management), Sarah Hinkfuss (Bain Capital Ventures), and Sanjot Malhi (Northzone), delved into the dynamics of current investment trends, pinpointing where the "smart money" is making its impact and highlighted that while fundraising may be tougher in today's environment, opportunities still abound:

  • Untapped Verticals: While aspects like funding have become more challenging, new verticals are emerging, networking is easier, and some categories, such as pre-IPO, are more accessible.
  • Unicorn Diaspora as a Talent Solution: The dispersion of talent from established unicorns as a distinct investment opportunity, emphasizing the need for a tailored approach when evaluating these ventures.
  • Talent Shortage as an Ongoing Challenge: The persistent lack of highly skilled talent as a significant hurdle to scaling companies, emphasizing the need for creative solutions to attract and develop specialized expertise.
