Center for Venture Capital, Private Equity & Entrepreneurial Finance Speaker Series
September 28, 2020
6:00 pm-7:30 pm
Please join on Zoom for the kick-off event of our distinguished speaker series. The speakers will talk about how VC funds select early- and later-stage companies for investment, how VCs decide on the deal structure and valuation, how they grow their companies, and exit their investments. They will highlight the impact of COVID-19 on VC funds and VC-backed firms. The panel will discuss how VCs raise funds from institutions and how institutional investors invest in VC funds directly and via advisors like fund of funds.
