									The CVCA annual conference is the premiere networking and professional
development event for Canada’s venture capital and private equity industry and
repeatedly sells out with over 600 industry professionals and influencers from across
the country, the U.S. and around the world.

 If you are looking to increase your company’s exposure in Canada’s private equity
          and venture capital industry, look no further than sponsorship at
                            The CVCA Annual Conference!

The Program

The program will have equal emphasis on venture and private equity issues. The
conference will kick of with a welcome cocktail event on the Wednesday evening and
include a Gala dinner on the Thursday featuring the CVCA’s “Entrepreneur of the
Year” Award presentation, followed by our popular scotch-tasting networking event.
We will also offer attendees an optional golf day on Wednesday and a Cyber Café to
further enhance networking opportunities.

The Theme

The theme of the 2011 conference is Renewal. Relationships. Returns. These
three words describe Canada’s venture capital and private equity today.
Renewal: There is little question that our industry has faced significant challenges in
recent years however there are encouraging signs of new opportunity and a growing
sense that a renewal is occurring.
Relationships: The long term business relationships built between the players in our
industry are often the pivot point upon which funds get raised and deals get done.
Returns: Investment returns are the reason we are in business. Superior investment
returns - exceeding the returns of all other investment asset classes - are the
primary objective of venture and private equity investors.

The Attendees

Attendees return year after year for the invaluable benefits of networking with key
industry leaders and for the topical issues presented and discussed at the various
organized presentation. Participants and sponsors at this prestigious event include
the following:
