PRIVATE EQUITY | VENTURE CAPITAL | CREDIT | HEDGE FUNDS | REAL ESTATE | REAL ASSETS
The Women’s Alternative Investment Summit is an annual high-level, content-rich event for women in private equity, venture capital, credit, real estate, real assets, and hedge funds: GPs, LPs, and the professionals who advise them. Now in its 13th year, the event is produced by Falk Marques Group, the organization behind the Women’s Private Equity Summit.
The Women’s Alternative Investment Summit is unique in its commitment to helping women build networks and to promoting the advancement of women in private equity, venture capital, and alternative investing in general. This event is specifically designed to help women advance to the next level of power in the finance industry through informative sessions and essential networking.
Due to the impact of COVID-19, in 2021 we will be holding two Women’s Alternative Investment Summits. The first takes place virtually over 3 half-days from January 26th - 28th, and the second is slated for New York City on November 11th and 12th, when we expect to have resumed in-person events. Both will feature moderated panel discussions, facilitated breakout conversations covering each asset class, and keynote dialogues followed by interactive Q&A sessions.
Attendees will have the unique opportunity to connect virtually in small networking groups and 1-on-1 meetings, to build trusted networks that provide access to raise funds, generate deals, manage the portfolio, realize exits, and advance your firm. This event attracts an influential and powerful inner circle to facilitate relationship-building, fundraising, and dealmaking opportunities and gain access to “hard-to-get” information.
Virtual WAIS – January 26-28, 2021
At the Virtual Summit, you’ll participate in some of the most honest, straightforward, eye-opening discussions of the business. Substantive conversations focus on the economy, the business of investing, choosing the right opportunities, tricky valuations, managing existing portfolios, exit strategies, and navigating the relationships between limited partners and general partners in tough times.
Networking with your peers has always been a key feature of the Women’s Alternative Investment Summit and the virtual event will be no different. We appreciate that there are real challenges to networking virtually, but we have found creative ways to deliver this critical part of the event! Participants can connect with one another through 1:1 chat and video calls, join a virtual reception and “table hop” with your peers, take part in face-to-face (via video) small group LP-facilitated roundtables, and enjoy fabulous swag drawings during uplifting networking breaks.
Summit attendees are seasoned professionals – women who have founded their own firms or have been dealmakers for 20+ years. Discussion focuses completely on the critical business issues at hand. Participants at the Summit network with peers, partners, and competitors. In short, they come to get deals done.
To attend, you have to be a member of PEAK, the new, exclusive, women-only membership network with a clear mission is to help women working in private equity, venture capital and alternatives to advance their careers. This is one inner circle you will want to be a part of!
