“I would absolutely recommend that entrepreneurs attend this event. It’s a great way to make connections with potential investors and meet other CEOs. You’re going to learn a ton about metrics that you should be looking at, get great ideas on how to grow your business, how to grow the sales team, how to figure out marketing – you’re going to get a ton of information out of it.”

Bill Smith

CEO, Shipt

“Prior to coming to these events, I had never had any interaction with private equity, so being able to actually meet the people and spend more than an hour in a meeting with them, and getting to know them on a personal level is helpful to see that they’re real people and they’re great for business.”

Ross Croley

Founder, Ministry Brands

Tony Summerville
