Private Investing Program
Designed for experienced professionals, current business students, and those interested in learning more about private markets and private investment asset classes. Our program is a one day event focused on principal learning objectives of foundational private investment concepts followed by a real life case study evaluation of a private investment opportunity.
The Private Investing Program is a live event conducted via Zoom and is limited to 20 spots per one day session. The program is designed to be conversational and interactive by nature. Two case study exercises will be conducted to tie together concepts of private market investing - an excel modeling exercise and a legal document analysis exercise. These exercises are designed to give the attendee practical tools to prepare them for private investment deal evaluation and selection.
