Private Capital Symposium 2022 – Call for papers

The Private Capital Symposium will be hosted by the Institute of Entrepreneurship and Private Capital (IEPC) residing at LBS.

About the Institute

Entrepreneurship and finance have been at the heart of London Business School for the last 20 years. In 2021, we launched the Institute of Entrepreneurship and Private Capital (IEPC), born from a timely merger of the Institute of Innovation and Entrepreneurship and the Centre for Private Equity. Both the Institute and Centre were already hugely significant, within London Business School and as parts of the wider business ecosystem. Together, we will aim to become an unparalleled centre for education, policy shaping and events covering all aspects of entrepreneurship, from idea generation to financing, and private markets investing. The IEPC will help create and finance the companies of the future and shape the people who will lead them.
