Which is cheaper …debt or equity? Come and enjoy this lively, informative and thought-provoking debate.

We call it an unwinnable debate because there is no right answer. Come and watch a fast pace and fun casual debate to find out why the answer lies in your business model and what makes this debate "unwinnable". We will follow the debate by an in-depth fireside chat on the benefits, risks, and costs of debt and equity. By the end, you’ll understand why debt is not necessarily always the expensive option.

PRIVATE CONVERSATION with the EXPERTS: If you want to talk to one of the experts in a one-on-one session to talk about the unique requirements of your business, sign up to attend the complete 2-day VIP session (includes private meetings, lunches, networking reception, and more) for only $50 here (value $2,500). SPACE IS VERY LIMITED.
