How to Exit: Nasdaq vs. Silicon Valley

We are delighted to announce that Carlsquare will be hosting an exclusive pre-event for HTGF Family Day. A dynamic mix of expert talks and networking drinks, it will take place in our Berlin office on June 10 (4pm-9pm).

Sebastian Büchert, CEO of Swedish-German medtech unicorn Bentley and “EY Entrepreneur of the Year 2023”, will deliver the keynote talk. He will share Bentley’s plans to potentially float the newly established holding company Bentley Endovascular Group AB on Nasdaq Stockholm First North Premier segment.

Complementing Sebastian’s insights will be presentations from Adam Kostyal, CEO of Nasdaq Nordic, on why his exchange is the best home for German tech companies, and from Hakan Sjörgen, Managing Director at Nasdaq, on the road to IPO.

Guests will also have the chance to participate in an M&A workshop with Susan Blanco, Managing Partner in Carlsquare’s San Francisco office. Susan will discuss “How to Sell Your Company to Silicon Valley” – a subject no-one is better qualified to speak on!

The evening will conclude with a cocktail reception – an opportunity for the visionary founders, successful executives and top-tier investors in attendance to renew old connections and start forging new ones.

In short, it promises to be an invaluable event, and we’re already looking forward to welcoming everyone in Berlin. Although it is invite-only, if you have a compelling reason why you should attend, please reach out to us.
