At the end of January a team of three Finance club members: Andrejs Strateicuks, Afief Helmi Baasir and Hsiang-Yun Chen attended one of the most prestigious events in the investment world: the University Private Equity summit 2013 that was hosted by the University of Utah, Salt Lake City.
The summit started with the Venture Capital panel, where a number of leading venture capitalists of the west coast talked about past experience, current challenges and future perspectives. Venture capital panel was followed by the Private equity and Entrepreneurs panels therefore participants gained experience from both investing and real business (entrepreneurs) sides.
The summit was attended by more than 200 people from different companies, universities and investment funds. This was a great opportunity to network not only with the investors and entrepreneurs involved in the discussion panels, but also with other participants.
