Join ACG Boston and the women of New England's middle-market M&A community for our annual Women's Connection Spring Luncheon!
The luncheon will feature a panel of leading women in the M&A industry sharing their insights and advice on "Best Practices to Realize Full Value in an Investment." They’ll discuss best practices and pitfalls to avoid throughout the lifecycle of the investment, from deal structuring to post acquisition integration, to ultimately maximize return.
Meet and connect with women at all levels of their dealmaking careers to strengthen your professional network and engage in discussions on the state of M&A, shared experiences and best practices, and the trends and opportunities available for women in the industry.
