A lot has happened in 2020
Unless you live on another planet, you must have been affected by the pandemic. For most of us, 2020 is a year to forget, so let's focus on the post-COVID-19 opportunities to start 2021 on the right foot. We can try to classify sectors into 3 groups, those who benefited from the crisis, those who are temporarily impacted but will bounce back, and those who might never recover, at least not under the same format.
- Winners: Telecom, eCommerce, Logistic, Health Care, Streaming...
- Be-backers: Airlines, Hospitality, Restaurants, Transports, Renewable Energies, Distressed Asset Managers...
- Potential losers: Cinemas, Theme Parks, Theatres, Events Management, Oil and Gas, Real Estate, Luxury...
The above segmentation should be refined by sub-sector though. e.g. If working from home becomes the norm, that will impact restaurants located close to businesses negatively but may favour residential real estate.
For 2021 Q1, VC-A shall focus on 1) renewable energy, 2) payment processing and 3) hedge funds
Where will you be focusing on?

VC-A has got a new website
You may say that it was just about time:
The old site was designed back in 2002.
The new site keeps all the functionalities that that were available, is secured by SSL and is GDPR compliant. VC-A Ltd is also now registered at the Information Commissioner's Office for data privacy matters.
The Sign-Up form is directly linked into our CRM, the VC-A M&A Suite. Whoever registers online is taken through our internal compliance procedure.
It is free to register, but only 1 candidate out of 20 pre-selected applications - e.g. who have passed the CV pre-screening filter - makes it to Associate Director.
Just to manage your expectations.
VC-A M&A SUITE
We executed an agreement with Epsilon Research to acquire the code of our VC-A M&A Suite.
