Events

Princip.al organises small-scale networking events for its members.  Please see below for an overview of the current schedule for 2017 and 2018.

As of year-end 2016, Princip.al had organised more than 30 sponsored sessions in the Benelux, covering investment topics as diverse as real estate, tech start-up valuation, agriculture, and impact investing at market rates of return.

The sessions typically take place over lunch and never last longer than 2 hours, allowing participants to combine involvement in the event with other commitments.

Princip.al events are typically sponsored by selected organisations.  Sponsors benefit from a speaking opportunity and exposure to our community.
