What is it?

The focus of this training is on understanding and applying the International Private Equity and Venture Capital Valuation Guidelines (Guidelines developed by IPEV Board).

The workshop starts with a welcome lunch and lasts one and a half days. Only a limited number of participants will be accepted in order to encourage interaction.
