For more than 10 years the BVCA Summit has been the must-attended event for the UK private equity and venture capital community, attracting over 900 attendees across two-days of unparalleled keynote speakers, proactive panel discussions, interviews, roundtables, networking and debate. For the second year running, we are delighted to bring our flagship event to you in a virtual environment, powered by a leading digital event platform.

This year’s theme is Investing in a changing world as we emerge from the COVID-19 pandemic, level up following the UK’s exit from the Brexit transition period and collaboratively work towards net zero targets, this is a time of significant global change.

Explore the role private equity and venture capital will play in the economic recovery, the UK’s role on the global stage post-Brexit, and how the sector will break new ground in digital transformation, accelerating net zero targets, ESG, impact investing, decarbonisation, diversity and inclusion.
