Attend as a VC

If you are an emerging tech VC in Europe raising Fund I, II, or III, or with a total AUM <£200m (€225m), ALLOCATE Spring 2022 is the event for you. Submissions to present at the event have now closed, but we encourage you to register for a ticket and attend to network with our LP and GP community. 

This year, we are combining the power of the virtual and in-person formats to make ALLOCATE Spring a hybrid experience.

From the theatre at The May Fair Hotel in London you can take advantage of in-person networking and our post session drinks event, or enjoy ALLOCATE online.

Three LPs are interested in investing. This seems like really great ROI.
