Affinity to Host London’s First Relationship Intelligence Conference for Dealmakers

Share

Affinity, the relationship intelligence platform for dealmakers, today announced it will host London’s first ever relationship intelligence conference, Campfire London. This event is taking place in the heart of London on February 8, 2023.

“Our inaugural Campfire event in California was a huge success, bringing together hundreds of U.S. investors both in-person and virtually,” said Shubham Goel, Affinity’s co-founder and co-CEO. “We look forward to bringing this event to our European customers and providing them the opportunity to meet with their peers and learn how they are using technology to fuel growth, manage pipelines, and effectively spend their time on relationships that drive deals in 2023.”

A recent survey revealed that investors are split on what this year will bring in terms of deal volume: 31% expect an increase, 36% expect a decrease, and 33% remain unsure. Affinity’s platform data, representing the largest dataset of pre-close dealflow in the world, shows a marked increase in the volume of potential investments being sourced. From November 2021 to November 2022, deal volume increased by more than 69%. One thing is certain, investors remain focused on sourcing new deals with 39% reporting that they plan to spend most of their time on prospecting this year. With 50% of deals still coming from outbound sourcing, investors are working hard to build out their network in new areas and invest in their current networks to ensure they have the right deals in their pipeline.

Campfire London will occur at a unique time for the private capital industry, with a historic drop in investments but with indications that investors are ramping up their dealflow for a different model in 2023. The relationship intelligence conference will include presentations and panels by investors and founders, like ABACON Capital, Notion Capital, and Isomer Capital. They will share how dealmakers can use technology to fuel growth, manage pipelines, and focus on what matters as the market continues to shift. The featured guest speaker, Olympic medalist and award-winning author Col. Dame Kelly Holmes, will join the conference for a fireside chat to discuss her career highs and lows, and the importance of having a winner’s mindset.

“The private capital industry has experienced exponential growth, which we witnessed in European venture over the last 15 years. Maintaining a good grasp of the ecosystem has become more and more challenging,” said Thomas Schneider, Partner at Isomer Capital. “We are excited to attend Campfire London and to connect and strategize with other industry leaders as we navigate an increasingly competitive market.”

Major Landowner Federations to Support AMR Against Nordic Mining ASA (NOM) in the Norwegian Supreme Court27.1.2023 12:59:00 EET | Press release

Key landowner federations declare 3rd party intervention in support of Arctic Mineral Resources’ appeal to the Supreme Court in the case against Nordic Rutile AS (NRU), a wholly owned subsidiary of Nordic Mining ASA (NOM). Arnold Rørholt, lawyer and AMR’s Chairman, welcomes the 3rd party intervention in favour of AMR: “The intervention will ensure that the Supreme Court, as opposed to the courts of lower instance, appreciates the principal nature of the case and the Constitutional issues underpinning it, and interprets the Mineral Act in light of these – to the favour of AMR.” “The Western part of the Engebø garnet and rutile province contains around half of the proven reserves in the Engebø deposit, as well as a majority of inferred resources and will support a highly profitable 50 years plus fully underground mining project without a need for deposits on land or in the sea” continues Rørholt. Arctic Mineral Resources (AMR) and the federations argue that the two mineral categories – o

Ipsen Receives CHMP Negative Opinion for Palovarotene as a Treatment for Fibrodysplasia Ossificans Progressiva in E.U.27.1.2023 09:00:00 EET | Press release

Regulatory News: Ipsen (Euronext: IPN; ADR: IPSEY) announced today that the Committee for Medicinal Products for Human Use (CHMP) of the European Medicines Agency (EMA) has recommended not to grant marketing authorization for investigational palovarotene as a treatment for the ultra-rare bone disease, fibrodysplasia ossificans progressiva (FOP). In the E.U. there are currently only symptomatic treatments for FOP, which do not reduce the formation of extra-skeletal bone in patients with the condition. Ipsen will be requesting a re-examination of the CHMP opinion, based on scientific data available from the existing palovarotene clinical trial program. FOP causes permanent and continuous new bone formation in soft and connective tissues, like muscles, tendons and ligaments, a process known as heterotopic ossification (HO).1 Once formed, it is irreversible.1 The average age of diagnosis is 5 years old2 and ultimately FOP shortens the median life expectancy to 56 years as untimely death is
