The Private Equity Conference (PEC) brings together financiers, students, and entrepreneurs to network and share insights into the dynamics of investing in a constantly changing economy. The PEC aims to provide high value to private equity practitioners by combining knowledge from both the industry and academia that would be hard to find in any other setting. Through a series of engaging keynote addresses and panel sessions, leading industry individuals offer expertise and thought leadership on issues important to both the financier and entrepreneur.
