Karl Mundorff | Director of the OSU Advantage Accelerator
"The Vox Angelis event was one of the most professional events I’ve ever attended. From the venue to the panel topics, panelists, the instant translations, the art work that augmented the panels, the food and entertainment, all of it was top notch! It was also exciting to see the wide variety of countries and angel groups represented by the attendees. The value of the connections is well worth the price of admission."
Andreas Mihalovits | Global Super Angel Club
"VOX ANGELIS 2019 clearly showed, that it is the No. 1 Early Stage Investors Summit in Eastern Europe, attracting not only some the most important investors and promising startups from Russia, but also a remarkable amount of international early stage investors interested to collaborate on a global level."
Candace Johnson | President Emeritus of EBAN
"Over the past two or three years, the level of Russian venture capital investors has increased significantly. I believe that Russian entrepreneurs and business angels are doing a great job, they help their companies to enter international markets, and contribute to globalization as a whole. As for me, this is the right direction."
Vitaly Polekhin | President of International Investor organization INVESTORO, National Business Angels Association, co-organizer of VOX ANGELIS/p>
"Venture investments at the early stages are no longer a local game. Investors are looking for new mutual opportunities in new markets. International exchange of experience on deals, portfolio structures, peculiarities of cross-border investments, successful and unsuccessful exits, with a deep dive into details - the main feature of VOX ANGELIS, where investors from 25 countries gathered. The open exchange of the existing deal flow, in which successful Russian and foreign investors invite each other to join, the opportunity to share experience and knowledge "without notes" not only in the informal part, but also through presentations and discussion panels - this is what our summit participants love."
Sergey Bogdanov | CEO YellowRockets, co-organizer of VOX ANGELIS
"The VOX ANGELIS Summit was attended by investors from more than 25 countries. This is very important for us because the summit aims to develop the global vс community. In the venture business, networking is almost the most important thing. In addition to a busy business program, we pay a lot of attention to creating conditions for informal communication and networking. This year we see a lot of new people at the summit - more than 100 foreign investors have gathered. Thanks to all this, the VOX ANGELIS Summit has become a recognized leading platform for meeting early stage venture market participants."
Oleg Teplov | CEO of VEB Ventures, General partner of VOX ANGELIS 2019
"Our corporations must learn to work with open innovations, and the whole ecosystem must help them. The level of maturity of the corporation is important, what product it can take on: either the whole chain from accelerator to corporate venture fund and M&A, or concentrating on the best solutions to look for ready-made stories in the market and support super teams that can integrate into the system. A community must be open and comfortable for everyone, no one innovates alone, this applies not only to startup entrepreneurs, but also to funds and corporations. Everyone has to be in the ecosystem. If we are not greedy and are ready to share, there will only be more projects, they will be of higher quality and the whole market will benefit from it."
Dmitry Kalaev | Head of IIDF Aceelerator
"A unique event for the Russian market, where the largest number of early stage investors gather.
Thanks to Vitaly Polekhin, Sergey Bogdanov and the whole event team!
Very rich with insights, experiences, new plans and soul talks :)
I recommend early stage investors and business angels to include the summit into their program of events for the next year!"
Fedor Yakovlev | Managing Partner at Startup Lab
"I spent this weekend at Vox Angelis.
I think this event is an absolute must for those involved in the world of venture. For me personally, this summit was a source of many ideas, as well as an opportunity to make sure that we are looking in the right direction in the Startup Lab. As a bonus - a lot of useful contacts and, of course, a great time.
Thanks to Sergei Bogdanov and Vitaly Polekhin for the perfect organization and networking, to Igor Ryabensky, Alexei Girin, Arkady Moreinis, Maria Ivanova for the excellent bowling game and wise advice that I'll be thinking about for the long time 👍"

«#VoxAngelis is over💥🔥👏
The event, as always, was brilliantly organized - Sergey Bogdanov's thermonuclear team #YellowRockets is on top, although after last year's summit it seemed that there was nowhere to grow. It turned out that there were - more interesting foreign speakers, discussions on topical issues, thanks to Vitaly Polekhin, and the plenary panels were just super. I've heard a lot of confirmation of my existing assumptions about the trajectory of Russian business angelism. To mention the style of the event, our development institutes still have to learn and learn - everything was perfectly moderated and timed, not long, short, relevant.
As usual there were many interesting contacts, including new foreign ones, as well as meetings of old friends from all over the country. 🔥"
Mikhail Erman | CEO, HSE Business Incubator
"Weekend spent in an excellent company of early-stage investors and those who want to become them, at Vox Angelis. Well, just a super useful and high-quality event, which every year as well as wine becomes only better. About 300 people from different parts of the world met to exchange experiences and agree on common deals and exchange pipelines. I came back with a bunch of useful contacts, which I will now turn into joint projects. Thank you, Sergey Bogdanov, for inviting me as a speaker, and the coincidence of circumstances that led to the cancellation of the previously planned trip. A giant work of @YellowRockets and @Investoro, guys are doing a great job".
Alexey Girin | General Partner, Starta Ventures

"Almost a month has passed since the event organized by Vitaly Polekhin's team - Vox Angelis.
Even before participation I was told: this is the best event in Russia for startups.
And after a month, I can once again confirm - it's the best and extremely effective.
Interesting program, awesome Network with 250+ angels and fund representatives from 30 countries, useful "off-the-record" insights, behind-the-scenes meetings and agreements!
Thank you for the invitation and the opportunity to be one of the few startups selected for the summit!"
