Welcome to a new series of special episodes of Tech.eu Podcast, made in collaboration with The Next Web. Over three shows, we’ll talk to VCs, governmental organisations, and startups about the changes in the entrepreneurial ecosystem in times of crisis and the ways for founders to navigate it. Today, we’ll hear from Katerina Borunska (European Commission), Kat Borlongan (La French Tech), Olga Barreto Goncalves (LIAA), and Nils Beers (Techleap).
In this episode, Andrii Degeler talks to two European VCs about timely topics that came out over the past week. Fred Destin of Stride.VC will walk us through his reasoning on the role of a VC in times of crisis; in the second interview, Fabric’s Richard Muirhead discusses the necessity of governmental support for startups on an example of the UK.
This week, Andrii Degeler is joined by Toon Vanagt, a serial entrepreneur who’s taken a stance against governmental bailouts for Belgian startups. Also featured in the show are interviews with Daniela Seixas (Tonic App) and Matt Kurleto (Startup Hansa).
Natalie Novick and Andrii Degeler recorded this episode at TechBBQ in Copenhagen last week together with our friends from StartupMedia42. It was also broadcast live around the venue into the silent disco headsets.
