Private Equity & Venture Capital
Attracting the best talent is critical to building any successful team…
Private equity is an alternative investment class and consists of capital that is not listed on a public exchange. Venture capital is a form of private equity and a type of financing that investors provide to startup companies and small businesses that they believe to have long-term growth potential.
As the number of deals and deal sizes continue to grow the number of players in the market grows too, the challenge then increases and it becomes difficult to be able to find the correct talent and skill sets. Attracting the best talent is critical to building any successful team and when it comes specifically to private equity and venture capital, candidates need to have that unique mix of finance modeling, due diligence, strategy, understanding of operations and advising clients and investors on complex investment approaches
