This year the BVCA Summit 2020 was hosted digitally as a live studio production.

Industry leaders, politicians, policy makers, entrepreneurs, and other industry authorities came together on 7-8 October 2020 to explore the role private equity and venture capital will play in the economic recovery and the UK’s transformation post-Brexit, and how the sector will break new ground in technology, ESG, impact investing, decarbonisation, diversity, and inclusion.

Every session from this industry leading event is available to watch in your browser and on-demand.
