Private Equity Venture Capital Conference / Downtown Chicago
The worlds of private equity and venture capital are facing unprecedented changes on many levels. An influx of non-traditional investors, fewer potential targets, and anemic economic growth are all contributing to intense competition for returns. The formerly well-defined lines of fund categorization have begun to blur, and major industry shifts are requiring a rethinking of traditional capital structures and holding periods. Given these momentous shifts, The Private Equity and Venture Capital Conference will explore the challenges of building value at both the fund and portfolio company level. The conference will also offer an invaluable opportunity for professionals, academics, students and alumni to explore the challenging issues surrounding private equity and venture capital, as well as to network with other industry professionals.
