Industrial Advisors Conference
EQT regularly arranges network gatherings to spot trends and opportunities, understand markets, industries, investment themes and share experience from the portfolio companies. The discussions are usually intense and the format engages not only the industrial advisors but also investment advisory professionals from EQT Partners and EQT portfolio company CEO’s.
A full potential mindset
The most recent conference took place in Stockholm in October and had a “full potential” theme, elaborating on how to gear up for a full potential experience.
“The support from the owner was essential and EQT had a very clear view on what could be achieved”, Gunnar Asp stated when sharing his experiences as CEO, developing Swedish cable TV operator ComHem during EQT’s ownership between 2003 and 2005. The entire cable TV industry was transformed when ComHem introduced the so called triple play service (TV, telephony and broad band) and the transaction is recognized to be one of the most successful private equity investments in the Nordic region ever.
