Private Capital Workshop: The Boom in Tech Investments by Private Equity

The technology industry is seeing a shift in its capital source from venture capital to private equity – as fundraising in the latter market booms with over US$740B in dry power as at the end of 2016.  Indeed, technology was the second most active sector for private equity investments in Canada during 2016 with 65 deals representing +$2.5B in transaction value.  Given that growing tech companies often have little in the way of operating cash flows, the approach to private equity investing in tech focuses on creating value through top-line growth rather than the traditional financial engineering driven approaches of cost cutting and financial leverage taken with industrial companies.  Daniel Lee, a Partner at Paradigm Capital, will be moderating a panel of technology focused private equity firms to discuss their approach to making investments.  This workshop will cover: i) profiles of companies ideal for private equity investments; ii) the benefits  that private equity firms can bring to portfolio companies; iii) the private equity investment process, and iv) private equity strategies in value creation and exit.
