PARTICIPANT TESTIMONIAL

"It's all about building and broadening your industry perspective on multiple levels. I was quite impressed by how current the HBS professors are on emerging global trends. They provided access to the facets of private equity and venture capital that I didn't have. Because of that, they also served as a valuable sounding board on issues that my team faces as we work to help our portfolio companies grow."
Shantanu Mukerji, Executive Director, Investment, L Capital Asia
