About IMPACT Capital Conference
As a premier signature event of PACT, IMPACT Capital Conference has a long tradition of uniting key players from the private equity, venture capital, and entrepreneurial communities.

Growth through Disruption at IMPACT
Disruption = dis-ruhp-shuh n] shakes the box. It’s a radical change in an industry or business strategy. Disruption can be intentional; out of necessity. Disruption works as a tool, a catalyst and a result of change.

Through best practices in technology, healthcare and early stage innovation, the IMPACT 2016 Capital Conference will examine disruptions in the marketplace of ideas. IMPACT will use disruption to inform, to educate and to shake business executives out of their comfort zone. Together we will look at how growth through disruption is achieved in entrepreneurship (innovation), investment (funding) and politics (society). Join us November 29 & 30!

We welcome our new Host and Chairperson’s Grant Thornton and Chairman, Sean Denham, Office Managing Partner, and Vice Chairman, Dave Maturo.
