Description

The McIntire School of Commerce, the Galant Center for Innovation and Entrepreneurship, and the Center for Investors and Financial Markets present the 2018 Fall Forum: Private Firms - Engines of Growth.

Publicly traded firms garner significant media attention and are often the primary focus of classroom discussion, but 99% of U.S. businesses are private, encompassing firms of all sizes, from small "mom-and-pop" shops to some of the largest global operators. Private firms are crucial to economic growth, accounting for roughly 68% of private sector employment and 52% of non-residential physical investment.

Keynote speaker Hiter Harris, Co-Founder of global middle market M&A advisory firm Harris Williams, will address the unique opportunities private firms provide and the variety of challenges they confront related to strategy, capital raising, and governance. A group of esteemed alumni who operate and invest in private firms will continue the discussion across two panels: "Private Firm Management: Challenges and Opportunities" and "Private Firm Investing and Ownership: Risk and Rewards."
