How much do you really know about Private Equity? 

About how it could help your business accelerate its growth plans by attacking new markets, developing products and services or pursuing acquisitions?

This event is designed to remove the mystery, dispel the myths and offer solid advice from the professionals and real-life stories from business leaders who have taken equity investment.

And to do that we’ll bring a blend of interviews and panel discussions and take questions from the audience.

On our agenda:

  • The human aspects of taking Private Equity investment
  • Being prepared
  • Securing the best deal
  • Executing your growth plan
  • Gearing for exit

We will hear first-hand experiences from the business owners, to learn from their journey and to examine the opportunities and challenges faced.

And we will meet the professionals who facilitate the deals and realise the dreams and ambitions of their clients.
