Woman in private equity, we know you are there! My good friend Shelley Bayes asked me to pass on this information. For those of you who don’t know Shelley, she, along with her husband Jack, is the indomitable force behind the Keiretsu London and Paris chapters. Keiretsu is a global platform, across 39 cities and 3 continents, bringing together serious angel investors with high quality deal flow. We are proud to associate with the London and Paris chapters and if you are UK-based either an angel investor, or a company looking for angel funding, I highly recommend that you get in touch with Shelley.
But I digress, Shelley has brought to my attention the Women in Private Equity Awards. I think this is an important and valuable initiative, and I couldn’t be happier about making sure it reaches the widest possible audience. I really hope all of you participate. Here is the snippet from her email:
Women in Private Equity will be honoring key individuals in the field in an event held in London later this fall. The aim of the awards is to make a career in private equity more enticing to women, to create role models for women considering a career in this sector, and to encourage companies to employ and train more women in Private Equity. This is a Europe-wide recognition program, so please feel free to nominate deserving candidates.
The timeline is:
Nominations Deadline 10th September 2015
Finalist announced 28th September 2015
Judging day 7th October 2015
Awards ceremony 12th November 2015
