Did you know that private equity dry powder exceeds $800 billion and firms are actively seeking investments in Arizona? Please join ACG Arizona and our sponsor LINK Capital for our seventh annual “A Taste of Private Equity” event — which is going virtual for 2020.
You’re invited to join us for an intimate discussion and private conversation with national private equity firms. Come engage and learn as we explore what’s behind the private equity curtain.
We’ll be providing the opportunity to network with other professionals in the private equity field. And, we’ll have an optional virtual wine tasting session with wines delivered to your door and a sommelier to provide a true tasting experience.
The evening promises to be a lively and engaging way to find deals and connect with other professionals. You won’t want to miss it!
This extraordinary year has tested the relationships between private equity firms and their portfolio companies.  It’s also tested the merger & acquisition industry and the deal making process.  Tune in next week when we meet a private equity group and two of their portfolio CEOs.  New York-based Topspin Consumer Partners specializes in great consumer brands and supporting the entrepreneurs and visionaries that develop them.  Topspin will be joined by two of their beauty industry portfolio CEOs - Rich Conti, CEO of Japonesque and Elexsis “Lexi” McCarthy, CEO of Makeup Eraser.   We’ll explore their dynamic partnership and the opportunities and challenges that 2020 has brought to building great brands and surviving the M&A process during a pandemic.
