Are you a business owner (or advisor of a business owner) who is looking to sell your business, to finance expansion or recapitalize so that you can take some money out of our business?  You may want to consider selling or working with a private equity group (PEG). 

PEGs come in many different types, sizes and flavors.  In this seminar, you will meet several different types of PEGs from across the country.  You will learn about how the various types of PEGs might benefit you and your business and what each PEG is looking for.  You will have opportunities to meet the PEG leaders face-to-face in informal settings: at breakfast,  breaks, at the luncheon and after the seminar.

Business owners will want to attend if they are:

  • Thinking about selling their business in the next five years
  • Seeking a financial/business partner to help them expand
  • Wishing to remain in their business but take some money out
  • Looking for financing to grow their business

We have selected PEGs to cover a broad spectrum of PEGs.  Each year, we try to involve new PEGs.  Some PEGs have very specific business models and requirements.  Others are more flexible.  Come to find out which PEGs may offer business opportunities for you and your business.  Your business advisors are welcome to attend as well.
