April 9th2019

The private equity industry is a key driver of our economy and a catalyst for growth and innovation. But how can we tap into best practices to set ourselves apart? Think big, be bold.

Réseau Capital’s 28th annual convention will take place April 9, 2019, in Montreal, with Geneviève Bouthillier, Assistant Head of Investments of Fondaction,  and Jean-François Marcoux, Co-Founder and Managing Partner of White Star Capital, set to serve as honorary chairs.

Come explore new practices, new issues and new models, and put past experience into perspective, through a series of talks and panel discussions with well-known experts who will share their insight with professionals in the PE/VC industries. And don’t miss this opportunity to network with leading investment capital players.

Among the highlights of this unique event will be an address by Pierre Fitzgibbon, Quebec Minister of Economy and Innovation, about our industry, which he was a part of for many years. Also a must is the always engaging Mitch Garber, Chairman of Cirque du Soleil and Invest in Canada, who will talk about his major philanthropic endeavours and his role in the new federal agency Invest in Canada.

5:00pm - 5:10pm Closing Remarks
