Session information

Session six : Market insights - The impact of public markets turmoil on growth company valuations and funding

Wednesday 28 September (1200 - 1230)


We have witnessed how the public markets, driven by the central banks policies, lifted tech start-up company valuations to unprecedented heights. Now the public markets seem to be bringing valuations down again – in many cases well below pre-pandemic levels. What is happening on the stock markets and what is the impact of current macro-economic circumstances on trading? What are the implications for the funding of start-ups and growth companies? The first session will allow us to hear from leading financiers on their insights into the current market situation and provide an outlook on what to expect in the near future.
