Tackle Pressing Issues Affecting Today’s Investing Climate

The PE/VC Conference draws on the insights of leading investors, portfolio company executives and industry consultants.

One of the highlights of the year is the student-led Private Equity and Venture Capital Conference, which brings industry professionals, alumni, students and Kellogg faculty together for a day of discussion on the current state of the industry and the most important issues.

Conference Details

The Private Equity & Venture Capital Conference will foster meaningful conversations about key opportunities and challenges in our evolving industry. This day-long event is a venue for students, alumni and the broader private investment community to come together and discuss key opportunities and challenges in our evolving industry as well as to learn from timely, informative panels, hear from leaders and experts, and connect with other professionals and students interested in PE and VC.

Funding Request Form for Events

There may be Heizer funds available to students for purposes related to PE/VC events. If you are interested, please contact the Heizer Center sufficiently prior to the event so there is time to consider your request. If approved, you will need to submit a brief report after the event in order to receive the funding.

Past Conferences

The 20th Annual Kellogg Private Equity & Venture Capital Conference covered a range of critical industry topics, including trends and economic outlook in private equity and venture capital, the future of private equity firm models, and creating value outside of capital.

In partnership with my conference co-chair, we set three goals for the PE & VC Conference: to explore industry challenges, shine a light on new opportunities and question the status quo. We are incredibly proud of what our team was able to create: 40 speakers, 300+ attendees, and one engaging day of networking, learning, and challenging ideas.
