WEBINAR: The Amazon Government Incentives Gravy Train: Welcome Aboard


Event Details


January 31, 2019 10 AM - 11 AM CST




Might one of your portfolio companies operate more like Amazon in 2019? As we’ve all heard, Amazon is in line to receive a $3 billion incentives package from state and local governments, which will drop to their bottom line. These incentives will bring $120,000 to Amazon for each of the 25,000 jobs they will be adding in Queens, New York. Register for “The Amazon Government Incentives Gravy Train: Welcome Aboard”, a Middle Market Insights webinar, to find out if one of your portfolio companies can pull off a similar feat.

The webinar details the specific elements of the famous package of government-sponsored incentives and provides a simple 4-step process for securing maximum value from these types of grants, for middle market companies as they grow in North America. Your host, Michael Press, President of SCOUT Economics, founder of the Ernst & Young Business Incentives Practice and former Chief Economist of the City of New York, will be joined by Al Weggeman, former President of L3 Technologies’ Security & Detection Business and COO of Safariland, to illustrate the value of taking a strategic approach to maximizing incentives.

The knowledge shared during this webinar will be of great relevance to C-suite executives and PC owners, especially as they prepare to implement 2019 capital budgets and integration plans. Invite the heads of your portfolio companies to attend this compelling webinar so they don't miss out.

Attendees will learn:

  • Why the typical middle market company fails to maximize shareholder value from government-sponsored business incentives.
  • How to estimate the value of Business Incentives for any upcoming project in the U.S.
  • How to develop and implement a strategy to maximize the value of these incentives.

Participants will have the opportunity to ask questions during the webinar.
