October 7-9, 2013

The Wharton Club is partnering with Thomson Reuters to help Wharton Alumni connect and meet with LPs, GPs and bankers. 

Wharton Alumni will gather at the Buyout West conference for three days of fundraising, deal flow, industry knowledge, networking and thought leadership.
  • Meet the investors you need to meet, who are personally recruited for the event.
  • Attend pre-arranged one-on-one meetings with LPs, GPs, lenders and bankers through Buyout's exclusive ExecConnect* program.
  • Generate deal flow with DealConnect private meetings between GPs and bankers/lenders - participants receive the attendee list two weeks in advance to arrange their own meetings.
  • Get the latest global private equity fundraising and deals intelligence from global data provider, Thomson Reuters.
  • Get a month's worth of fundraising, deal financing and deal sourcing networking done at one time.
Wharton Alumni Buyouts Network:  On Day 1, Monday, October 7th @5:30pm
Wharton Alumni (and affiliate club members) will gather briefly as group at the Buyouts networking reception to kick start the conference before spreading out to build relationships.  We'll gather to build and strengthen our "Wharton Buyouts Network" with face-to-face introductions.  Come share with others what you are looking for so the network can help you.  Share how you can help the network.

During the conference, we'll build insights from speakers such as:
  • Jonathan Coslet, Senior Partner & Chief Investment Officer, TPG Capital
  • Timothy C. Draper, Founder & Managing Director, Draper Fisher Jurvetson
  • Lex Huberts, President, Mellon Capital Management
  • Kim Redding, Chief Investment Strategist, Brookfield Asset Management
  • Alex Navab, Member & Co-Head of Americas Private Equity, KKR
  • and more..
We'll build relationships through ExecConnect and DealConnect:
  • ExecConnect is designed with the networking needs of attendees in mind. The ExecConnect Private Meeting program actively arranges one-on-one meetings between Investors and Fund Managers so you'll have time to meet with firms you choose, in a private setting. The 20-minute meetings are pre-scheduled by conference directors ensuring you meet with executives who best match your fundraising and investment goals.
  • DealConnect: DealConnect is the private meeting program for GPs, lenders and bankers running throughout the Buyouts West conference. As a participant you'll receive the list of attendees involved in DealConnect two weeks out from the conference to arrange your own meetings at the event. A private DealConnect lounge is available throughout the three days to enable you to meet at your convenience.
