Falk Marques Group LLC develops and produces professional conferences, insightful industry news and event content and unmatched networking opportunities for an international audience of senior-level decision makers in private equity, venture capital and alternative investments.
Our highly acclaimed Women’s Private Equity Summit, held each March at the Monarch Beach Resort in Dana Point, CA, and Women’s Alternative Investment Summit, held in New York each November, are the cornerstones of our success. These major industry events bring together institutional investors, fund managers and advisors to the industry for an honest exchange of business ideas and information, invaluable networking and unrivaled dealmaking.
In September 2019, Falk Marques Group launched our third conference for senior-level women in private equity and venture capital. Leadership Unbound, held at The Ritz-Carlton, Half Moon Bay, CA, is a unique, hands-on retreat for LPs and GPs that provides an actionable road map for women on their way to the top and for those already there. This Summit tackles the critical skills and strategies women need—and the steps they can take—to enhance their value to their firms and advance to the next level of power.
In 2020, Falk Marques Group launched PEAK, a new, private membership network with the mission of helping the advancement of women working in private equity, venture capital, and alternatives. Falk Marques Group also produces Perspectives, premier webinars and virtual networking events connecting women in private equity and venture capital, and Women’s PE Briefs, a weekly e-newsletter that showcases the achievements of women in the industry.
In November 2020, Falk Marques Group was acquired by Pageant Media, the global business information and events provider, which includes the Pension Bridge portfolio of must-attend educational and networking events for institutional investors and asset managers in North America, Europe, and AsiaPac.
