of Partners and Counsels in B2RLaw are women (we are approaching parity!)


of B2RLaw’s entire legal team are women

More than a year ago, we joined the #nieczekam107lat campaign, an initiative by Ringier Axel Springer: Onet, ForbesWomen, Ofemini, aimed at strengthening the voice of women in Poland, redressing gender inequality, and increasing the number of women in the public space. We encouraged women experts to enroll in the expert database, to create their own portfolio, which connected them to Polish media and developed their substantive potential.

Now it’s time for our own 2BaWoman initiative – B2RLaw’s women for women: our clients, loved ones, business partners, activists, inspiring successful women. Expertise has no gender for us. There are plenty of competent and wise women among us who are willing to share their experience and knowledge. We invite you to share this platform with us.

We guarantee that there will be no shortage of good impressions!

What’s in store for event participants?

Intimate atmosphere, substantive talks, unusual venues and wonderful guests. Each event, tailor-made and unconventional, will be dedicated to a selected group of interested ladies.

A Discussion on Venture Debt

For emerging companies, gaining access to financial resources can be a challenge. Traditional bank loans are often unavailable, and the financial means of the founders are usually limited.

Venture Debt is a potentially attractive complement to equity financings for business startups that already have strong investors on board. It is a highly flexible instrument with very little dilutive impact on founders and existing investors. Venture Debt is already widely available and used by emerging companies in the US, Western Europe and further afield, whereas the product is in its infancy in respect to the Polish/CEE market.

Brought to you by B2RLaw and in partnership with Vestbee, with leading international speakers on the subject, A discussion on Venture Debt will examine:

+  What is Venture Debt?
+  The market of Venture Debt and how its use has grown.
+  When can a company turn to Venture Debt?
+  The use of Venture Debt in practice and its mechanics.
+  A real example of Venture Debt in use in a Polish founded company.
+  How Venture Debt applies to the Polish market and its legal framework.

10am CET, Thursday 2nd December 2021
