Stephan Morais, Managing General Partner, Indico Capital Partners (Portugal)

President, IVC Smart Capital 2018


We are busy people, and as such we rarely get to spend quality time with peers, in a spirit of collaboration and trust, away from the distractions of the office. This is the very reason the IVC Council initiated the IVC Smart Capital event. This meeting is organised more like a retreat than a conference. The atmosphere is informal, but productive. To ensure the discussions have meaning, and that attendees can share opportunities in their own portfolios and pipelines, the event takes place under the Chatham House Rule which reads as follows: “When a meeting, or part thereof, is held under the Chatham House Rule, participants are free to use the information received, but neither the identity nor the affiliation of the speaker(s), nor that of any other participant, may be revealed” (Chatham House, The Royal institute of International Affairs).


The IVC provides a platform for members to come together in the belief that the best deals happen via deep networks. The IVC Smart Capital is an extension of that activity - you can build new relationships and deepen existing friendships. This annual event is by invitation only and attracts 100 international VC partners and guests.


It is an honour to preside the IVC Smart Capital event for the second time on the 20-21 September in Porto. I warmly welcome the members and guests that have already confirmed that they will join us (see list) and the ones yet to confirm.
