125th GILC Summit

Tips on identifying a unicorn company, the pros of investing in the aviation sector, and insightful news from investors representing 14 countries were just some of the highlights of the 125th GILC Summit. Held on May 4, 2023, the event brought together not only investors who are Club members but also new guests. Esteemed investors, single-family office leaders and other investment experts had 3 hours of dazzling networking and disruptive investment opportunities. The Summit proved to be a resounding success, with over 40 investors in attendance from all corners of the globe.

As Charles Sidman, Founder at ECS Capital Partners, a long-time Club member, described his experience to new guests of the Summit: “I’ve been a Club member for a couple of years now and I have to say that I’ve made acquaintances and friends here that I would not have found otherwise. It has been a great experience and I look forward to all of the Club’s gatherings.”

Martin Fritsch, CFO at VFS Global, UAE, shared his approach to distinguishing potential unicorns, which involves a keen eye for disruption and a focus on logistics and B2B companies. He believes that the key to identifying a unicorn is to look for a startup that has the potential to disrupt an industry and create significant value. His approach is focused on identifying the key factors that can lead to a company’s success. Martin believes that it is important to look for startups that have a strong team, a clear vision, and a unique value proposition. He also emphasizes the importance of timing and market conditions, as these factors can have a significant impact on a company’s success.
