Cutting through the Noise: Deploying Smart Venture Capital
On February 10 Cat Chicago Booth in London, the Polsky Center will host Steve Kaplan, Neubauer Family Distinguished Service Professor of Entrepreneurship and Finance at Chicago Booth, for a moderated discussion with Randy Kroszner, Deputy Dean for Executive Programs and Norman R. Bobins Professor of Economics. Professor Kaplan will discuss the performance of private equity investments compared to public equities, and share insights into why venture investments are outperforming public markets. Taking the discussion a step further, Professor Kaplan will explore how venture capitalists make decisions and answer the question of whether investors should bet on the jockey or the horse. Join the Polsky Center for this unique opportunity to hear from Professor Kaplan and receive guidance on how to evaluate opportunities and deploy smart capital in today’s private markets.
