Monte Carlo Capital is a group of business angels, UHNWI and family offices investing in Europe and the US in early stage deep tech and highly disruptive businesses.

“It is a very attractive thing for me that the Global Investors Summit offers a super strict no broker policy and the venue is only for active vetted investors.” – says Ian Sosso, founder of Monte Carlo Capital

According to the latest figures from EBAN (the European trade association for angel investors), the average investment for an angel investor in a start up in 2017 was EUR 25,000, and EUR 182,000 for an angel investment club. Meanwhile, venture capital funds start investing with significantly larger numbers. Even exceptional businesses looking to raise $500K to $2M often struggle to get financing. It’s the valley of death form start ups. This is where Monte Carlo Capital comes in.

“Realising this event our aim is to enrich the Monaco community with inspirations, know-how and opportunities for co-investments.” – says Olia Kaimakchi, CEO of KCG Capital

For the selected and verified attendees of the Global Investors Summit, Ian explains how, by being able to take an entire seed round, and increasingly leading follow-on investments too, whilst bringing a global ecosystem of advisors and relationships usually only available at large VCs, MCC has grown into one of the most active group of private investors in early stage businesses in Europe. combining the best of what angel investors and venture capital can offer.
