ACG Raleigh Durham is the region’s premier organization dedicated to profiling, promoting and celebrating corporate growth. Our chapter is the local presence of the Association for Corporate Growth (ACG), a global organization of 15,000 professionals involved in acquisitions, strategic and organic middle-market business growth.
The mission of ACG Raleigh Durham is simple: help business leaders grow their companies. We do this through high quality programming and focused networking opportunities for members. Our steady lineup of events helps to showcase corporate success stories told by business leaders in both large and emerging companies. In April of 2016 ACG Raleigh Durham will be hosting its twelfth Capital Conference. The Capital Conference focuses on bringing together high-growth companies with private equity funds and investment banking firms. This year’s event will again feature our Made in the Triangle (MITT) companies to showcase the outstanding companies located in our region. As always, time with old friends and meeting new friends are the hallmark of the Capital Conference networking opportunities.
Since our inception, ACG Raleigh Durham has grown steadily and is today comprised of over 140 leaders responsible for their company’s corporate growth initiatives, both organically and through mergers and acquisitions. Approximately two-thirds of our membership represents area corporations or capital providers, with the remaining one-third representing senior, trusted, advisors and professionals. The strength of ACG Raleigh Durham’s membership was recognized in 2012 when we were named ACG chapter of the year. Additionally we have been awarded two innovation awards in 2013 and 2015 for programming which continues to refresh our members’ reason for membership and participation in our chapter.
Doing business is at the heart of the ACG membership experience. ACG Chapters bring business leaders and dealmakers together to help them achieve their business and professional goals. Over 75% of ACG members report that they have done business with fellow members. This ROI has made ACG the most trusted and respected resource for business leaders and middle-market dealmakers who invest in growth.
The Association for Corporate Growth, Raleigh Durham, serves as a catalyst for business growth by providing businesses with relevant knowledge, sources of capital, and other resources.
Our vision is to create a business climate where regional companies thrive, contribute to the prosperity and vitality of the community, and serve as models of sound, ethical leadership and sustainable growth.
