Focusing on value creation

Following the success of the inaugural 2019 event, Growth Capital Forum will return on Tuesday 31 March 2020 at Ivy Sunroom in Sydney.

Attend the Forum to gain insights into the world of Growth Capital!

Hosted by Private Equity Media, this event offers unique opportunities for sector knowledge sharing, networking and deal flow generation.

The Forum will examine growth capital – including later stage venture capital – from the viewpoints of institutional investors, private equity and venture capital fund managers, other investment firms, family offices and high net-worth individual investors. We will also learn from the experiences of founders who have accepted growth capital investment. This will provide essential feedback for investors as well as entrepreneurs planning to seek funding for the expansion of their businesses.
