The Global Series of Masterclasses
The EMPEA Fundraising Masterclass returned to Washington, DC on 15 May 2014 thanks once again to the support of Debevoise & Plimpton LLP and MVision Private Equity Advisers. Part of EM PE Week in Washington, DC, this Masterclass offered attendees the rare opportunity to hear directly from the industry's leading LPs and other industry experts on actionable fundraising advice and common pitfalls.
