The 24TH Annual Private Equity & Venture Capital Conference
at the New York Athletic Club, Mahattan, NY
FRIDAY, MARCH 16, 2018
Over the past two decades, Wharton students and alumni have built a leading forum for Private Equity and Venture Capital professionals to share ideas and discuss the future of the industries. The Conference is one of the most recognized student-run events of its kind, and among the largest professional conferences for Private Equity and Venture Capital worldwide.
This year, the conversation will take place through the lens of Separating from the Herd. The Private Equity and Venture Capital industries have become increasingly crowded. Ample capital and ever-more funds compete for opportunities in a low-return environment. How does a firm overcome the trend towards converging returns and separate itself from the herd?
