London Business School 8th Annual Private Equity & Venture Capital Conference

Event : London Business School 8th Annual Private Equity & Venture Capital Conference

Thu, 10/05/2012  
Conducted by : London Business School Private Equity & Venture Capital Club
Contact : Yabing Wu

 Hosted by the London Business School Private Equity & Venture Capital Club, this flagship event attracts a rich variety of industry professionals from GPs to LPs, advisors, recruiters, media and policy makers as well as enthusiastic business school students and academic thought leaders. Last year we had well over 300 participants, forming a diverse public arena for debate of current trends, challenges and opportunities in the private equity and venture capital space.

This year’s conference examines an industry undergoing profound changes. Continuing economic challenges and debt market turbulence in Europe, increased external scrutiny and mounting pressure to put capital to work in both Western and emerging markets are among the challenges that lay ahead. At the same time the industry is showing some signs of renewed strength, with fundraising and deal activity making tentative progress after 2011’s late-summer freeze.
 
Keynote addresses and panels featuring industry leading practitioners, advisors, and other stakeholders will assess these trends and share insights into how PE and VC firms can adapt to meet the challenges of this new environment.
