The Mid-Atlantic Venture Association Presents
Investor Forum 2017

The event of the year for active investors in the Mid-Atlantic Region and beyond.

What is the Investor Forum?

A half-day forum designed specifically for the investing community to come together around thought leadership focused on the latest financial and global market and investing trends. Consistent with Capital Connection’s 25-year reputation for quality and innovation, the 2017 edition of Capital Connection will bring together a diverse group of investors and LPs from the US and Canada with interests across industry sectors.

In partnership with the Embassy of Canada, this expanded Investor Forum 2017 will provide a content-rich agenda of topics of direct importance to firms with investment interests in growth enterprises in North America. The Investor Forum will be open to MAVA members, LPs, family offices, growth and private equity investors and special guests from across the US and Canada. The agenda will provide a platform for a thought-provoking discussion of current topics and trends in financial markets.

Who should attend the Investor Forum?

The Investor Forum will be open to MAVA members, LPs, family offices, growth and private equity investors and special guests from across the US and Canada. This investor-focused program will begin with a briefing on the State of the Industry followed by an in-depth industry panel discussion, moderated by Ed Mathias, Managing Director, The Carlyle Group, which will delve into some of the most important topics of the day as seen through the lens of US and Canadian LPs, representing different models and approaches for investing. The Forum will conclude with a Luncheon Keynote featuring insights from the President and incoming CEO of Nasdaq, Adena Friedman, on the technology trends that are shaping the world of finance. Beyond these top caliber presentations, we look forward to fostering new connections among participating investors anticipated to be in attendance.

Hosted in Partnership with

The Embassy of Canada, Washington, DC

501 Pennsylvania Ave. NW
Washington, D.C. 20001-2111

Since its completion in 1989, the Canadian Embassy in Washington, DC, has been envied for its location and admired for its architecture. But the building also reflects Canada’s commitment to protecting our environment. That commitment — whether improving energy efficiency, reducing water use, curbing emissions or raising awareness about environmental issues — is manifest in a number of exciting Embassy initiatives.

The Embassy is located in next to the Newseum across from the National Gallery of Art and is a five minute walk from the metro station Archives-Navy Memorial-Penn Quarter station on the Green and Yellow lines. Stay tuned for parking information.
