CVCA Annual Conference - May 23, 2012
AVAC is an active member and a proud supporter of the CVCA Annual Event
The CVCA Annual Conference is the premiere networking and professional development event for Canada’s venture capital and private equity industry and repeatedly sells out with over 600 industry professionals and influencers from across Canada and around the world.
This year’s theme is “Venture Capital & Private Equity: Outperforming the Markets”.
Since the beginning of time, investors have focused on stocks and bonds, shifting their allocations between these traditional asset classes with the times. Alternative assets like private equity and venture capital were rarely considered and poorly understood, since the traditional assets were considered safe and reliable. But the world has changed: major equity markets have traded sideways with growing volatility through the past several years, and fixed income investments are near zero real returns. The traditional model is broken as investors rethink the risk/reward equation and look for alternatives.
Private equity and venture capital can provide exactly what investors are looking for today: strong returns and companies that will take a leadership position in an increasingly competitive global economy. This is the opportunity to create new companies and transform existing ones. Active management by highly skilled private investors is the secret sauce. These investors jump right into their portfolio companies, working alongside management to truly transform these businesses. How do they do it? The 2012 CVCA Annual Conference will show you!

Sure, Korg's MS-20 mini is impressive, and at an unbelievably low price, but their iMS-20 app beats it in my mind for the workflow advantage of having presets! The iConnectMIDI4+, on the other hand, is offering something totally new and seriously innovative.”
