Making Money Through Private Equity

It’s safe to say people get into private equity companies in search of big money. It is important to know your risk tolerance if that is the route you are pursuing. “You’re swinging for the fences when you pursue equity,” according to Jeff Hyman, a four-time CEO who raised $55 million in Venture Capital and served as Operating Partner for one of Chicago’s preeminent private equity firms. He’s an award-winning PE and VC headhunter, professor at Kellogg School of Management, and author of the bestselling book Recruit Rockstars.
