Join us May 18 at Sofitel City Centre for the first in-person PE/VC conference of the year. Hear from your peers and family offices and institutional investors how they have braved the unprecedented crisis and what the new playbook looks like. Seats are very limited and on a first-come-first-served basis only. Visit the Gallery tab for more information on our speakers. Limited capacity in line with safe distancing guidelines. Tickets will be on a first-come-first serve basis, register today as seats are running out fast!

We will also be holding a two-hour masterclass hosted by Kroll, right before the conference, which will help participants gain a deeper understanding of the best practices that PE and VC investors must use when conducting due diligence on their investment targets. Investment teams have shown tremendous flexibility and creativity to continue to undertake due diligence remotely for cross border deals. Regional investment teams have found innovative ways to overcome this constraint, from using drones to visit factories virtually, to using third parties as their hands and legs on the ground. Discreet investigative background checks have become even more crucial in such an environment.

MASTERCLASS OVERVIEW

Discreet investigative background checks have become even more crucial in such an environment.

The two-hour masterclass will help participants gain a deeper understanding of the best practices that PE and VC investors must use when conducting due diligence on their investment targets.
