About this Event

Meet Martin Sokk, the CEO and Co-founder of Lightyear, an innovative investment platform that's redefining how we think about stocks, funds, and the value of uninvested cash. With a passion for democratizing finance and a vision for a world where investment is accessible to all, Martin has led Lightyear from its inception in 2020 to become a beacon in the fintech sector. His journey in the tech and finance world is marked by significant achievements and leadership roles that have deeply influenced the industry.

Martin and the Lightyear team are back in Budapest to celebrate a milestone moment – the first anniversary of their operations right here in Hungary. Martin will delve into the increasingly pertinent theme of fundraising—a topic that resonates deeply in today's dynamic startup ecosystem. Given how the landscape of raising capital has evolved dramatically over the past 2-3 years, many founders find themselves navigating through uncharted waters, grappling with the shifting expectations of VC and angel investors. Lightyear, under Martin's leadership, has successfully completed three fundraising rounds (with names such as Lightspeed Venture Partners, Mosaic Ventures, Taveet + Sten, Richard Branson) each under markedly different terms. This experience, combined with Martin's ongoing engagement with various VCs across the globe, positions him as an invaluable resource. He stands ready to share his insights, experiences, and strategies, offering a unique perspective to founders within your community who are looking to understand and meet the modern challenges of securing investment.

Whether you're a seasoned follower or new to the Lightyear story, this event promises a blend of insightful updates, forward-looking projections, and firsthand stories of innovation and success. We're excited to welcome you to this special occasion, where we'll not only celebrate the past year's achievements but also look forward to the future possibilities that lie ahead for Lightyear and our thriving tech community.

See you there!
