• What is it?

Private Equity Academy is a unique educational project. The leading Poland-based private equity and venture capital firms partnered with the Next Gen Committee of the Polish Private Equity and Venture Capital Association (PSIK) and Level20 to create this initiative.
The project strives to shape the next generation of private equity professionals by giving access to practical knowledge about PE & VC through a series of online workshops led by seasoned market practitioners. Workshops, run as a series of lectures and case studies, will focus on the fundamentals of PE & VC, valuations, deal-making, financing, value creation, exits, and career paths in private equity. The course will conclude in Warsaw with a gala dinner where participants will get certificates and have an opportunity to network with PE professionals. pdfbrochure
