Invitation INSEAD SIG Healthcare & Life Sciences event ‘The transformational role of PE in Public Healthcare’
Elderd Lands’ passionate belief is that without an active role of Private Equity (PE), the domain of Public Health will not easily be transformed.
Transformation comes with certain levels of financial uncertainty that are typically avoided in the public domain of healthcare. PE however, strives to achieve good return on investments. To obtain a healthy risk reward they invest in companies that innovate and thus change the current paradigms.
Elderd Land will share some of his key learnings with INSEAD alumni and will take questions from participants. The session will be held in the English language.
