Dress: Business Casual
The event will be a panel with three members of the middle-market PE firm, HGGC, based in Palo Alto. Each member will talk about their background/previous careers within the broader finance industry (having worked in banking or consulting prior, and also for various non-profits including the Gates Foundation), the business school they attended/key takeaways (Stanford Business School and Harvard Business School), and their current position in PE. Additionally, they will cover what specifically PE is, what sectors the firm focuses in, and the various opportunities PE provides to work with vastly different businesses; this includes different industries, size, and maturity level.
In terms of event structuring, we anticipate beginning with a formal Q&A with structured/prepared questions, and then opening the forum for all members to ask them any lingering questions they may have. The firm has also mentioned that for anyone interested in PE or the firm specifically, they welcome the opportunity to open a line of dialogue and have resumes submitted.
