The Must-Attend Industry Event for Senior-Level Women in Private Equity & Venture Capital
Since its debut in 2008, the Women’s Private Equity Summit has become the “must attend” major industry event for senior-level women in the private equity and venture capital industries. These accomplished women — a thoughtfully balanced audience of GPs, LPs, and advisors to the industry — attend the Summit to swap stories and information, initiate deals, and forge new relationships.
Due to the impact of COVID-19, we will be holding two Women’s Private Equity Summits in 2021. The first takes place virtually over two half-days on March 10th and 11th, and the second will take place at the fabulous Monarch Beach Resort in Dana Point, California from September 27 - 29, 2021, when we expect to have resumed in-person events. Both will feature moderated panel discussions and keynote dialogues followed by interactive Q&A sessions, as well as networking opportunities.
Virtual Women's Private Equity Summit – March 10-11, 2021
The Virtual Summit will focus on how the industry has changed over the past year and how both LPs and GPs are thinking about moving forward. Leading industry professionals will discuss investing, fundraising, liquidity, co-investing, due diligence strategies, and the continued push for diversity, and focused sessions facilitated by leaders in each subject area will provide a small-group forum for an informative and in-depth look into trending topics in these sectors.
Networking with your peers has always been a key feature of our Summits and the virtual event will be no different. We appreciate that there are real challenges to networking virtually, but we have found creative ways to deliver this critical part of the event! Participants can connect with one another through 1:1 chat and video calls and join a virtual reception, where you can “table hop” with your peers.
In-person Women’s Private Equity Summit – September 27-29, 2021
Now in its 14th year, this highly interactive Summit features informative sessions and candid conversations. Participants are successful women from across the spectrum of private equity, venture capital, credit, and other private market investments who want to see other women succeed and who have profound industry experience, information to share, unique stories to tell, and lessons to teach.
With keynote sessions and moderated panel discussions featuring an international roster of industry leaders, participants have the opportunity to connect with and learn from women pioneering innovative strategies for fundraising, deal sourcing, portfolio management, and liquidity management. Evening networking functions and a variety of optional pre-Summit and early morning networking activities round out the program.
The Women's Private Equity Summits are ideal for making new contacts, renewing old friendships, and building a trusted network to help advance your firm — and your place — in the industry.
To attend either the virtual or in-person Summit, you have to be a member of PEAK, the new, exclusive membership network with a clear mission to advance women in private equity, venture capital, and other alternatives. This is one inner circle you will want to be a part of!
