A career in PE, VC, or growth equity is intellectually stimulating, highly diverse, and incredibly international. Job opportunities however are scarce and the world of Private Equity remains little known by students. 

Therefore, ESSEC Transaction started organizing the Paris PE Summit to give students an insight into the world of Private Equity.

This years edition took place in the Tour First at La Défense, within the E&Y Paris premises on February 14th. 

Our goals:


Provide students with an opportunity to take a glimpse into the world of PE for a day, as well as enable professionals to give back to their universities and promote PE.

Day schedule :


  • 9h00 – 16h00: Keynotes and panel discussion held by PE specialists and top firms managers.

  • 16h00 – 18h00: Workshops supervised by junior collaborators.

  • 18h15 – 19h00: Closing and networking cocktail.


Many key Private Equity institutions have shown their interest in the PE Summit through their participation in former editions. All the ones listed below have participated in this year's conference and have shown keen interest in being part of the next one!
