  • He cites data from the Current Population Survey, made up primarily of non-MBAs, that studied the industries where entrepreneurs founded companies.

    Kick-Off Meeting
  • Entrepreneurship Kickoff October 2007
  • Overview of PEEK
    • Organization Goal:
    Educating members about private equity and entrepreneurship, strengthening relationships with alumni, and facilitating career and networking opportunities
    • Who should participate in PEEK events?
      • All students interested in pursuing a role in private equity or entrepreneurship , whether directly after graduating from Kellogg or later in their careers
      • Students pursuing careers in industries in which they would be working with entrepreneurs or private equity professionals, such as investment banking, consulting or general management
  • What is Private Equity?
    • General Definition:
    Equity capital invested in private companies
    • Who is investing?
      • Private equity firms invest capital on behalf of their limited partners
      • For simplicity purposes, we divide private equity firms into two general categories:
        • Venture Capital : Firms making investments in companies in their early stage of operation
        • Buyout : Firms making investments in companies in their later stages of operation. These firms usually recapitalize acquired company with some level of debt after transaction.
  • Club Organization
    • PEEK events will be targeted/marketed to one of three interests:
      • Buyouts
      • Venture Capital
      • Entrepreneurship
    • Why does PEEK cover all three?
      • Line is blurry between Buyout and Venture Capital investing. Students can learn investing principals in one area that might apply to other; having a club that oversees both encourages such insight
      • Individuals working in Buyouts and Venture Capital will often work closely with entrepreneurs, and vice versa. Having a club that oversees all three areas provides greater opportunity for interaction during business school
    • Students can, and are encouraged to, attend any PEEK event
