About the Summit

Women’s Leadership Unbound Summit, developed and produced by Falk Marques Group, is a two-day interactive Summit for up to 200 GPs, LPs, and industry advisors already in leadership positions and for those who are poised to lead.  A unique, hand-on retreat, Leadership Unbound provides an actionable roadmap – tools, information, and smart next steps – for women to enhance their value to their organization and advance to the next level of power.

Keynote thought leaders will share theory and case studies, and private equity and venture capital pros will serve as facilitators for no-holds-barred exchanges of what works and what doesn’t.  Discussions are authentic and unscripted. Sessions are collaborative and formats are flexible. The line between attendees and speakers is blurred as successful women share information and experiences; women helping women to advance their position and achieve even greater success.

High level discussions on leadership topics and industry issues, along with unparalleled networking, make this a must-attend Women’s Private Equity Summit event.

Target Audience

The Summit is geared toward women who already play a key role within their firm and want access to the skills and strategies that will help them gain more decision-making authority, add even more value to their firm, and advance to the most senior leadership positions.

The majority of the attendees at the 2019 Summit had 15 years or more of experience in the financial services industry. They included representatives from LP institutions (pensions, endowments, foundations), GPs at private equity and venture capital firms, and advisors to the industry. We welcome service providers to sponsor and attend the event.
