Institutional investors have once again taken a shine to venture capital as fundraising amounts in 2014 topped levels not seen for years. Will 2015 bring more of the same demand for these funds, and if so, to which victor will go the spoils?

Join hundreds of VCs, institutional investors and other senior executives on March 24-25 in Boston for an in-depth discussion on LPs' views toward the future of the asset class and emerging trends that promise to shape the industry in the years ahead. Organized by the editors of Venture Capital Journal, we'll bring the best minds together for quality discussions and unparalleled networking amongst senior decision-makers.

Discover answers to questions such as:

  • What VC sectors have investors' interests now?
  • How to know when an emerging VC will succeed?
  • How long will VC returns remain robust?
  • VC Shark Tank: LP panel judges VC fund pitches
  • Superior Networking
    VCs and investors will also participate in our ExecConnect 1:1 meeting program while on-site. Now in its 6th year, ExecConnect pairs fund managers with suitable investors for 20-minute introductory meetings. Last year scores of managers walked away with fresh mandates from investors directly as a result of their ExecConnect meeting.

    New This Year - The Growth Equity Summit
    As an added bonus to this year's agenda, register for Venture Alpha East and you'll be qualified to attend the Growth Equity Summit, a half-day program focused on the specific strategies of growth equity. Topics to be hit on during this program include:
