Yale Career Panels: A Candid View of Venture Capital and Private Equity

This event is the 52nd in a series covering different professions and career issues. There have been 42 Yale Career Panels and nine Yale Career Fireside Chats.

Organized nine years ago by a group of Yale alumni volunteers, these panels strive to provide candid, unvarnished views of featured professions. Our panelists for this event are in venture capital and private equity. They will be able to share their perspectives about each profession and also provide the audience with a comparison.

The panel discussion will be broadcast via an interactive streaming video platform that will allow Yale students and alumni to ask questions of the panel and interact with each other. There will be a networking period after the one-hour panel has ended.
