WELCOME TO THE CBS PEVC CONFERENCE
On behalf of Columbia Business School’s Private Equity and Venture Capital Club and The Private Equity Program, we are delighted to welcome you to our 20th annual Private Equity & Venture Capital Conference.
This year’s conference will bring 1,000 professionals, alumni, and students to The Sheraton New York for a day of candid discussion on the state of the industry. Our 2014 Conference theme ‘Driving Entrepreneurial Thinking in the World of Investing’ will focus on the emerging challenges and opportunities facing the private equity and venture capital industries in the coming year.
The goals of this conference are to educate, promote discussion, and provide a forum for interaction between academics, professionals, and students who are active in the private equity and venture capital communities. New York City is at the epicenter of these industries, and Columbia Business School is committed to being a leading mentor in developing the next generation of industry talent.
We are excited to bring to our attendees a strong agenda for the day, featuring respected industry professionals as well as select academics from our esteemed university. By including representatives from a variety of backgrounds, our goal is to bring in a breadth of perspectives from across the industry.
We would like to express our sincere gratitude for the participation of each of our speakers, the support of our sponsors, the assistance of Columbia Business School’s faculty and administration, and the counseling and guidance of Professor Donna M. Hitscherich ’90, Director of the Private Equity Program.
We hope that you enjoy this year’s program.
