About this Event

Have you ever wondered what does investing in technology mean? Have you heard about venture capital, growth and private equity but do not know what is the difference? Would you like to learn about characteristics of a successful investment?

Code First Girls and KKR are proud to host the ‘Technology Investing 101’ event, an opportunity to learn about the industry. The session will showcase how investment organizations work with companies and founders, and what do they think about when making an investment.

The event will start with a panel of investors across the technology spectrum: private equity, growth and venture capital. We will learn how do they source investment opportunities, diligence companies and work with founders and management over the lifetime of the investment. The panel will be followed by a workshop, where you will be given a taste of an investor’s thought process via an interactive case study.

This event is particularly suited to graduates with computer science / engineering background who would like to explore a career in investing. KKR is a global investment firm with a history of backing such technology companies as Trainline, OVH, Exact, SoftwareOne, GoDaddy, Epic Games, GetYourGuide and Lyft.

Format: Panel followed by a workshop
