LSE SU Alternative Investments Conference 2020- Worth it?
I just got an invitation to attend the LSE SU AI 2020 conference.
Since I'm from Spain and I would need to pay Hotel costs + travelling costs + the ticket of the conference, I would like to know if it is worth it.
I know that the speakers are good and that I will meet a lot of students with similar interests, but I would like to know if going will make a difference in my future.
I have seen that there are workshops and networking events where some students might also be invited to interview process, but since I'm not a target student (I come from a public school) I really don't know if I could benefit from all that.
It seems a very interesting experience, but I don't have that much money and spending about 400€ with an event that might only give me some info about Alternative Investments is not considered for me a good investment.
What do you guys think? Are the "networking" events worth it the cost?
I consider I have a nice Cv for such an event since I have some experience in VC, nevertheless, I'm not target and being the event an LSE event, might harm me more than benefit me.
Thank you! Waiting for some thoughts about these :)
