Association for Corporate Growth
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.

GrowthEconomy.org
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.  

GrowthEconomy.org 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.

In today’s fast-paced business environment, successful leaders know it pays to have a little bit of expertise on a lot of topics.  That’s exactly why ACG Western Michigan has created one of its most diverse and informative seasons yet for 2015.  Whether the issue is making the jump from "corporate office to entrepreneur" or avoiding mistakes in the tight-knit world of franchising, we have it covered this year.

 
ACG's mission is "Driving Middle Market Growth"

Our programs are high on substance and low on fluff, giving you bottom-line insights into driving growth, setting strategy and thinking past next quarter’s numbers.  Join us in 2015 to learn how, why and where business is getting done in West Michigan.
