The 25TH Annual Private Equity & Venture Capital Conference

at the New York Athletic Club, Manhattan, NY


Conference Overview

After 25 years of success, this year’s conference theme is a tribute to our silver anniversary and is intended to spark discussions amongst attendees, keynote speakers, panelists, and moderators alike.

This year, the conversation will center around “finding the silver lining.” Given the growing feeling that the market is experiencing a calm before the storm, it’s important now, more than ever, for private equity professionals to find a way to see the silver lining. In an overvalued market and with the speculation of a potential downturn, the Conference is intended to bring together leading minds in the private equity and venture capital industries to discuss how to capitalize on opportunities as we move forward into this complex landscape.
