"The New Normal: Too Much Money Chasing Too Few Deals" with Doug Tatum

May 8, 2018 at 12:00 pm

During this keynote, Doug Tatum will cover some of the insights derived from the latest data and research from The Business Dynamics Research Consortium, a public-private research institute devoted to the study of business performance and economic growth and operated as a research consortium at the University of Wisconsin. Doug was instrumental in the establishment of the Consortium and serves on its Board and as its Research Advisory Chairman.

Using data from the Consortium and concepts in his best-selling award-winning book, "No Man’s Land – Where Growing Companies Fail" (four National Best Business Book Awards), he will outline the new normal facing the private equity industry, entrepreneurs, and investment bankers in the United States today.
