Connecting senior leaders in North American private equity and venture capital for 14 years.

Join the most senior and influential people within private capital. Network face-to-face for the first time since the beginning of the pandemic and discuss what the future holds for the industry.

What will private capital look like in a post pandemic world? What sectors are market-leading firms investing in? What are the new trends shaping the industry and how are LPs and GPs approaching new opportunities?

What are some of the sectors and themes to invest in, and which are the ones to avoid? Where are market-leading firms investing? What are some of the new trends that are shaping the industry?

LPs must plot their next steps to remain smart investors.

Tailored LP-led discussions, private networking sessions and invite-only breakfast workshops are just some of the reasons so many LPs attend. Plus a deep dive into specialist topics designed to educate and spark innovative ideas.

LPs already signed up include AIIB, Gilder Office for Growth LLC, Mitsubishi UFJ Trust and Banking Corporation New York Branch, ORIX Life Insurance Corporation, and many more.

Who will you meet?
• More than 70% of attendees are C-level, Partners and Managing Directors.
• Over 75% of the audience are LPs and GPs.
• A seniority and quality of audience you only find at SuperReturn events.

Reconnect with senior decision-makers and create new opportunities.

We’ve structured the event to make it easy for you to meet the people who matter.
