The Quebec City Conference, Oct 25 & 26, 2010

Now in its seventh year, the Quebec City Conference (“QCC”) is a private, by invitation-only and not-for-profit annual conference for leading international venture capital and PE firms, institutional and strategic investors, sovereign wealth funds and family offices whose activities produce tangible economic gain and societal benefit, and for public policy makers, industry experts and leading academics in this investment field, in a format intended for high level exchanges and reflection. All participants meet, network and hear distinguished keynote speakers on subjects such as the economy and markets, innovation, emerging markets, and venture capital and private equity. Service providers are not invited. No other conference of this kind exists anywhere else in the world.
