CCGR Conference

Corporate Finance and Governance of Privately Held Firms

The objective of the conference is to take some initial steps toward a better understanding of how privately held firms are governed and financed.

Conference Goal

Privately held firms probably account for the largest portion of value creation and employment in virtually any country around the world. These firms are likely to evolve and utilize governance structures and to face specific financing challenges that are very different from those of publicly traded corporations. The objective of the conference is to take some initial steps toward a better understanding of how privately held firms are governed and financed.
