Defining growth equity after Covid-19

Brian Smiga

Minority investment? Tech investment? Investment in a growing company? The space between Venture and Private Equity is most certainly gray. As we come through perhaps the largest economic event in US history, the classic definition for Growth Equity becomes even grayer.  

 

This conversation will be a theoretical discussion on how to define Growth Equity post Covid-19 and will provide interesting insight for GPs and LPs alike.

FUND MANAGERS

Count on PartnerConnect to Introduce You to Your Next Investor

Here’s How it Works:

  • Contact Kevin McCaffrey at AYale@buyoutsinsider.com, who can get you set up with an ExecConnect profile and explain next steps on LP meetings.
  • Institutional Investors review profiles of all GPs and prioritize those whom they are interested in meeting.
  • We arrange private one-on-one meetings at our PartnerConnect events with LPs who have indicated an interest in your firm.

More than 11,000 meetings have been arranged between PE/VC Fund Managers & Institutional Investors since the start of ExecConnect 9 years ago, with $1B plus in confirmed commitments from LPs who first met GPs at our events.

Avoid the inconvenience of putting time, energy, and significant money into searching for prospective investors.

DEALMAKERS & SERVICE PROVIDERS

Shake Hands With 150+ Financial Sponsors at Each of Our PartnerConnect Events

Our events are designed with bankers, lenders and service providers squarely in the middle of all of the action at our PartnerConnect events throughout the year.

Your ticket includes first rate networking with senior decision makers at private market funds (PE, VC, Real Estate and more), as well as limited partners who back them. Group passes and discounts are available. Bankers and lenders also receive a complimentary pass to our well-known Deal Makers’ Dinner, alongside PE firms on the middle night of the conference. For service providers a select few passes are available through dinner sponsorship.

Standard Rates
Fund Managers – $3,000
Independent Sponsors – $1,500
Service Providers – $3,300
