Following the highly successful women-focused panel sessions at our AVCJ Forum over the past five years, our inaugural AVCJ Women in Asian Private Equity Forum will take place this September. This stand-alone event will explore the issues and challenges the private equity and venture capital industry faces in increasing and retaining the number of female investment professionals. It also provides a unique opportunity to meet and network with like-minded professionals in Asia.

Join the first full day, women focused PE/VC event in Hong Kong as an extension of our women panels at the AVCJ Private Equity & Venture Forum event in November.
