SVCA Workshop - Sourcing: Thesis-Led Sector Scans

On the 4th of August 2017, a number of Venture Capital (VC) and Private Equity (PE) practitioners gathered at the M Hotel as Alex Boulton and Vrinda Ghai shared Bain’s approach to thematic sector scans and investing.

They began with a review of “Hot Sectors” observed based on  their consulting experience, and led the participants to explore how macroeconomic trends in the region can develop likely secondary and tertiary impacts. These potential secondary and tertiary impacts can then form the key ingredients of their thesis-led sector scans. A case study based on the Agriculture Industry was used to reinforce these principles.

The workshop was peppered with lively questions and comments as participants shared their personal experiences enhancing the overall learning experience. The SVCA thanks all of our participants for their active attendance and for Bain & Company for their invaluable contribution.
