The Society of Physician Entrepreneurs (SoPE) is pleased to announce that Christopher Kersey, M.D., will join us in a fireside chat on November 17 at Noon ET.

Moderator: Jeffrey N. Hausfeld MD, MBA
Co-Founder and Chairman of SoPE
Chairman and Chief Medical Officer BioFactura, Inc.
President, Memory Care Communities, LLC

Christopher Kersey, founding managing partner of healthcare-focused Havencrest Capital Management, closed a $356 million fund earlier this year, and will discuss how the macroeconomic environment we are facing will affect the private equity industry. What does it mean to SoPE members and the startup community if holding periods for PE firms are going to start to lengthen again? What is the best strategy if your startup may be susceptible to discretionary spending or government shutdowns?

Can PE firms help their portfolio companies deal with issues of wage and raw materials inflation, as well as supply chain disruption? According to Chris Kersey, “There’s $1 trillion dollars of private-equity dry powder on the sidelines,” he said. “This is available but uncommitted capital that will continue to drive transaction volume for the foreseeable future. Private-equity fund managers are incented to deploy capital regardless of the macroeconomic situation.” Join the SoPE fireside chat and learn how!
