Breaking the Private Equity/Alternatives Glass Ceiling: Why Women Investing in Women-Led Firms Is the Answer

The number of senior-level women in private equity, venture capital and other alternatives has barely budged in the last ten years. But we may be on the verge of a game-changing transformation of the industry, as more women-owned firms are being started, and more women are becoming allies in the capital formation process. In this Wednesday morning workshop, we'll examine this promising development from both the limited partner and the general partner perspective. We'll explore how women are supporting other women either by representing their institution or by investing as a GP or individual in funds as first investor (hey – "it's what the guys do"). We'll take a close look at the elements to consider as an investor, from assessing the brand, to legal considerations, to using your network to identify the next great fund. Join us to discuss the successful launch of women-owned funds and how to decide if you should be the one to provide "social proof" with that first check.
