The velocity of technology deal flow amid the pandemic
Advent International surveys a booming tech scene
The COVID-19 pandemic has upended nearly every industry. Software, with its mission-critical status and purely digital engagement, has seemingly come through the crisis the strongest. Occupying a front-row seat to technology deal flow in the midst of these interesting times is Lauren Young, a partner at Advent International.
RSM’s Kerensa Butler spoke with Lauren, addressing topics ranging from valuations, the impact that software has had on the health care industry and what it’s like to pursue deals in a stay-at-home environment.
Additionally, as the number of female partners in the competitive private equity space increases, Lauren shares with Kerensa her career path and her thoughts on bringing women and other underrepresented populations into the private equity.
