Rising Stars 2022-2023

Nominations for the 2022-2023 Class of ACG Los Angeles’ Rising Stars Program is now closed and the class is set!  ACG LA is proud to offer this program to our key sponsors and professionals involved on board committees prior to reaching out to the broader ACG LA community.

Now in its tenth “class” year, the program focuses on younger professionals involved with corporate growth,  development, and mergers and acquisitions. ACG Los Angeles' Rising Stars assembles a broad cross-section of deal professionals including attorneys, capital providers, investment bankers, private equity investors, and related service professionals. With well over 125 participants since inception, the first several classes of Rising Stars gave the program very favorable reviews for both discussion content and the strong connections they made with other Rising Stars in the deal community.  We are very excited to continue building on this success.

Comprised of six formally programmed sessions, the Rising Stars program targets younger professionals in the ACG community (who may or may not be members) that seek to enhance and jump start their networking efforts and personal brand. The program also include more informal networking opportunities with other members of the program. The sessions are typically held in the West Los Angles area in the late afternoon.

Sessions take the form of an educational component combined with social networking. Sample session topics include:

  • Best practices for professional networking
  • How to jump start your networking efforts
  • How to balance “inside” office responsibilities with the need to “get out” and network
  • Developing a unique angle to market yourself and your firm
