Research Strategy

To identify conferences that bring private equity firms and/or other investors together with public and/or private companies and are scheduled to be held this year in the US, we looked through event websites, e.g. Eventbrite, F4 Events, 10times, etc. In addition to that, we also looked into lists of major technology, media, and business services events to find any conferences meeting the required criteria. Using these approaches, we were able to find several conferences that are scheduled to be held this year in the US and are focused on bringing investors and public and/or private companies together. However, most of these conferences were related to the healthcare, biopharma, or energy industries. We then shortlisted the conferences that featured topics related to technology, media, business services, and/or private companies and provided our findings in the attached spreadsheet.
