The Golder Center

The Stanley C. Golder Center for Private Equity and Entrepreneurial Finance was established in 2005 to advance the understanding of private equity investing and to build bridges between the private equity community and the University - its students, faculty, researchers and staff.

The Center focuses its programs on the roles and the impact that private equity and its investors have in financing new and growing businesses as well as in the financing of recapitalizations and restructuring of existing enterprises.
