LTC Members Lunch with Alexandre Mars
at the Arts Club
10 March 2022
We were delighted to host a private lunch with 'French Bill Gates' Alexandre Mars: entrepreneur, philanthropist, investor, and founder and CEO of Blisce - a B Corp certified transatlantic growth-stage VC fund.
Since 2013, Blisce has invested in 21 leading U.S. and European companies including Spotify, Pinterest, Headspace Health, Brut, and Too Good to Go, with 7 exits. In addition to providing financial support, Blisce helps its portfolio companies develop and implement ESG policies. In parallel, Alexandre harnessed the momentum of his success to found Epic, a global foundation which seeks to empower and protect children, youth, and our planet.
A fascinating discussion on investment strategies and criteria for selecting companies, ESG and being B Corp certified, and differences between investing in Europe and the US.
The value of your investment may go down as well as up and, therefore, your capital is at risk. Investments in venture capital funds and projects are particularly risky and you may lose all your invested capital so you will need to ensure that you are able to afford this loss. Investments should only be made by investors who understand the risks.
