MediaTech Ventures’ Work in Funded House to Match Startups with Investors at Balkan Tech Summit and IFA Berlin

Collaborating with IFA Berlin and the Balkan Tech Summit to build an international portfolio of investable innovators, Funded House will manage the investor lounge throughout the coming 5 day, 100 year old, conference. IFA Berlin, renowned as a premier platform for showcasing cutting-edge consumer electronics, has added the IFA Next startup showcase and other innovation-focused programming this year as it gears up for its 100th anniversary in 2024.

Launched by T-Squared AgencyThe Experience Firm, and our work in MediaTech Ventures, Funded House is a pioneering endeavor that connects startups with interested investors. Building this European focus from an official SXSW 2023 collaboration with German.Innovation called Innovation Bridge Europe, we’re continuing to establish meaningful connections, foster cross-pollination of ideas, and help startups to secure funding faster.

With hundreds of startups expected from 35 countries, IFA Next delivers the perfect opportunity for Funded House to jumpstart its global portfolio and create a uniquely valuable experience for investors.

“The opportunity to be part of a meaningful innovation initiative inside of a nearly 100 year-old conference is something we couldn’t pass up,” said Funded House co-founder Elijah May, who will be part of the team on the ground in September.

Working with the Balkan Tech Summit herein, Montenegrin startup hub Digital Den and Peter Adams, Managing Partner at Rockies Venture Fund and author of “Venture Capital for Dummies”, have come together to launch the Balkan Tech Fund. Funded House will both participate in the event and engage U.S. investors interested in the untapped potential that the Balkans bring to the table. “This is an exciting time for Digital Den and its partners,” said Adams. “We’re confident that this fund will open up new opportunities and bring strategic investors from across the U.S. and into this ecosystem. Growing these Balkan companies and taking them to global markets with multiple soft landing opportunities in U.S. cities is a win for everyone.”

In order to mark the first Balkan Tech Summit gathering we invite all interested parties to join us for the “Balkan Tech Fund information webinar: Perspectives of Balkan startups and innovation; Investments and Opportunities” on August 23rd at 6pm CEST/12pm EDT/9am PDT where Adams, other partners Darko Ivanovic and Nenad Novovic, and MediaTech Ventures’ advisor to the fund, John Zozzaro, together with Nedeljko Milosavljevic from Founder Institute Serbia – will outline Balkan investment possibilities, delve into the fund’s vision, plans, and address your questions: CLICK HERE TO REGISTER

The participating Western Balkan Six States – Montenegro, Serbia, Kosovo, Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, and North Macedonia – form the fastest-growing startup ecosystem in Europe. With 17.5 million inhabitants, these nations are projected to host over 900 start-ups by 2026, with that number continuing to grow year-over-year by 10%.

“It’s been an honor and privilege to work alongside Darko, Nenad, Anja Adamovic, and Nina Milic, their incredible teams at Digital Den and Amplitudo d.o.o., and absolute legend Peter Adams. It’s been an incredible journey and learning experience helping launch venture capital in a region for the first time in its history.”
