About


ACG Columbus is one of 56 chapters of the Association for Corporate Growth, Inc, and our goal is simple – we want to promote the growth and development of Columbus area businesses for the benefit of our communities and Ohio.

Our programming and networking events are designed to share best business practices; build worthwhile relationships that will generate quality growth opportunities; gain exposure to investment opportunities; and promote the growth of Columbus area companies through organic growth and transactions such as mergers and acquisitions, joint ventures, and distribution agreements.

We offer:
  • Monthly breakfast or luncheon programs for members and guests with keynote speakers
  • Periodic roundtables and panels on subjects of current interest for C-level executives
  • Access to ACG's annual InterGrowth conference where corporations, private equity firms, financial institutions, and service providers meet to learn new ways to promote corporate growth, access capital, and network
  • Access to the Great Lakes Capital Connection, an event that brings companies together with private equity firms. This annual conference is co-sponsored by ACG Columbus and other ACG chapters in Cleveland, Cincinnati, Indianapolis, Detroit and Pittsburgh
  • Access to ACG's JobSource service, serving to match company needs with professionals seeking new positions
  • Access to ACG's online membership directory
  • Access to capital resources on ACG's proprietary database CapitalLink and the bi-annual ACG/Thomson Dealmakers Survey
  • A subscription to ACG's Mergers & Acquisitions Journal
  • The opportunity to attend ACG Columbus's annual awards program recognizing a corporate leader for lifetime achievement as well as outstanding corporate value and service provider awardees.
 
ACG Columbus was recognized by ACG Global as the Outstanding Chapter of 2011 based on its programming, membership growth and retention, governance, and financial status. Our goal is to continue to increase our membership and to bring meaningful programming and networking opportunities to our members which, in turn, help promote the growth and development of Columbus area businesses.

We support the efforts of Columbus 2020, the Columbus Area Chamber of Commerce, TechColumbus, and state and local development officials in promoting our economic development in our region.
