During the fireside chat, Sachin and Harris Program Director Burcu Esmer led attendees through a deep dive into what success looks like private equity. They discussed big questions like “What is the winning mindset that leads some investment firms to consistently outperform?” and “What traits are found among some of the world’s most successful private markets investors?”
