I started reading Beating the Street by Peter Lynch, today. I’m about a third of the way through already.
He says that when he was a fund manager, one of the best ways that he discovered new investments was by going to investment conferences and watching the presentations. From what I understand, companies who are looking for investment will give presentations at these events. Some conferences are themed to a specific industry, e.g. restaurants, biotech, energy…
Does anyone have any experience of going to these or know of any? I’ve had a quick google, I’m not sure if they still exist, maybe the internet has made them unnecessary.
P.S. I don’t mean conferences where people are trying to tell you how to invest or sell you tools/courses, I mean events where I can see companies that are looking for investment.
