The SPAC Opportunity Summit will bring together industry experts and those with real-world SPAC execution experience to discuss the current state of the SPAC market, legal implications of SPACs, and what lies ahead for this alternative vehicle which has taken the market by storm.

As the Penn SPAC Club, we are aiming to present SPAC vehicles as feasible alternatives to the traditional IPO process. We would like to spread awareness of this structure to the University of Pennsylvania community and engage in opportunities to bring this alternative to our curriculum.
