History

The European VC Network (EVCN) was initiated in 2008 by Arne Morteani (Environmental Technologies Fund) and Stefan Menden (Straub Ventures). Paris VC Network was initiated in 2009 by Mounia Rkha (Ventech), Ashish Puri (Partech Venture). In 2010 we decided to merge the two networks and form a European network with a single Steering Committee.
