Wharton Private Equity &

Venture Capital Conference

A two-day virtual experience organized by Wharton MBAs to bring the leading minds of private equity and venture capital together.

The COVID-19 pandemic has transformed almost every industry over the past year, in some cases accelerating pre-existing trends and in others creating entirely new ones.

Which of these shifts will be temporary, and which will persist once the pandemic is over?

In an economy coming out of its first recession in a decade, where unemployment rates hit their highest levels in generations, deal valuations nonetheless remain near all-time highs. How will investment professionals discover and create value in the much-changed world of 2021?
