This is a unique time for energy in the US. The landscape is drastically changing, specifically in crude oil and natural gas. Technology and entrepreneurship are allowing investing dollars to last longer and go further in each fund. Regulation may also be leaning toward tougher rules on emissions resulting in a significant change in the economics of the energy industry.

How will investors evaluate success going forward? What criteria should they be using for future investments? Will new and potentially stricter regulation change how investors raise capital going forward?

Chicago Booth invites you to join us in Houston for a discussion with Booth alumni and energy experts who will share their expertise and perspective on the current environment. Hear their take on the future of energy investments.
