ANN ARBOR, Mich.—The Center for Venture Capital and Private Equity Finance (CVP) at the Stephen M. Ross School of Business at the University of Michigan will hold its 24th annual Michigan Growth Capital Symposium (MGCS) on June 15-16.

The two-day symposium will bring together investors from across the country and Midwestern entrepreneurs and related stakeholders for company presentations, panel discussions and networking.

This year's keynote speakers include David Rubenstein, founding partner and managing director of the Carlyle Group, and Timothy Draper, founder and managing director of Draper Fisher Jurvetson.

Both will deliver keynote lunch addresses with Rubenstein presenting June 15 and Draper on the following day.

"Mr. Rubenstein and Mr. Draper continue the MGCS tradition of presenting outstanding keynote speakers," said David Brophy, CVP director. "These leaders in entrepreneurial finance inform and inspire our entrepreneurs and business community, our students and faculty. They help improve the environment for building innovative entrepreneurial businesses in the Midwest."
