    15. 16. Entrepreneurship Kickoff October 2007
    16. 17. Overview of PEEK <ul><li>Organization Goal: </li></ul>Educating members about private equity and entrepreneurship, strengthening relationships with alumni, and facilitating career and networking opportunities <ul><li>Who should participate in PEEK events? </li></ul><ul><ul><li>All students interested in pursuing a role in private equity or entrepreneurship , whether directly after graduating from Kellogg or later in their careers </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>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 </li></ul></ul>
    17. 18. What is Private Equity? <ul><li>General Definition: </li></ul>Equity capital invested in private companies <ul><li>Who is investing? </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Private equity firms invest capital on behalf of their limited partners </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>For simplicity purposes, we divide private equity firms into two general categories: </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Venture Capital : Firms making investments in companies in their early stage of operation </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>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. </li></ul></ul></ul>
    18. 19. Club Organization <ul><li>PEEK events will be targeted/marketed to one of three interests: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Buyouts </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Venture Capital </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Entrepreneurship </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Why does PEEK cover all three? </li></ul><ul><ul><li>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 </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>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 </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Students can, and are encouraged to, attend any PEEK event </li></ul>
