History

ACG Kentucky was formed in 2008 to serve deal-making professionals in Greater Louisville and Southern Indiana. The chapter works to promote middle-market business growth by attracting private equity capital sources to the region and actively facilitate M&A deal making.

Known for its bourbon and racing industries, Louisville is located at the epicenter of a vibrant region that includes Indianapolis, Cincinnati, and Nashville. Greater Louisville continues to develop as an economic center, with a robust and growing private equity community comprised of local and high profile national private equity firms.

ACG Kentucky’s leadership consists of senior leaders of prominent private equity firms, investment banks, commercial banks, business services professionals, and private equity-backed growth businesses. The chapter features industry leading speakers and active networking opportunities in a modern conference center environment.

ACG Kentucky offers many interaction opportunities:

  • Breakfast or lunch meetings, typically held on the second Tuesday of the month from February through June and September through November.
  • The annual golf outing provides members and guests the ability to network in a social setting, with a portion of proceeds donated to a deserving local charity.
  • The annual Capital Connection, scheduled to be held in Louisville in 2019. Co-hosted with the Tennessee ACG chapter, Capital Connection attracts private equity firms from around the nation.
  • Periodic member-only social gatherings provide ways to meet other members and learn about their roles in the achievement of corporate growth.
