ACG is where people who are SERIOUS about business go to CONNECT, share and learn. 
Our meetings feature thought-provoking SPEAKERS who speak directly to the concerns of high-growth, mid-size businesses.  From effectively INVESTING for growth to enhancing valuations and MANAGING change, your concerns form our agendas.

ACG is where local DEALS are discussed, dissected and, quite often, done. Simply put, ACG is BUSINESS NETWORKING for grownups.

Growth Economy is a dynamic research database that matches data from two independent sources to track a key driver of the US economy: how private equity-backed companies compare to other U.S. businesses on jobs and sales growth. This powerful research tool is made possible through a partnership between the Association for Corporate Growth (ACG), PitchBook Data, Inc., and the Business Development Research Consortium at the University of Wisconsin-Extension. is unique in that it doesn’t present a static report, but allows the user to determine the parameters of data sorts to compare the performance of 80,000+ private-equity backed companies against more than 55 million other companies between 1995 and 2013. Data may be sorted by state, metropolitan statistical area and Congressional district.
