Xconomy Hosts Investing Legend Peter Brooke: The Photo Gallery
Last Wednesday, October 21, it was our privilege at Xconomy to provide a stage for a conversation between two legends of the investing world. The guest of honor was Peter Brooke, the founder of Advent International and TA Associates and the man most widely credited with spreading the idea of venture capital and private equity investing to the world outside the United States. Interviewing Brooke was Terry McGuire, the co-founder and general manager of Polaris Venture Partners and chair of the National Venture Capital Association.
The discussion, which ranged from inside stories from Brooke’s investing career to the health of the VC and PE industries amidst global economic uncertainty, drew a packed audience to the 26th-floor conference room at event host WilmerHale. We plan to bring you a full writeup of the event, as well as a video, a bit later—but we thought we’d tide you over with a few pictures from the event.
All of the photographs here were taken by Kevin Vogelsang, a 2009 MIT engineering graduate who volunteered to handle the camera for the evening. You can click on the photos to see larger versions.
