Rising Stars 2019-2020

We are pleased to announce a Call for Nominations for the 2019-2020 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 eighth “class” year, the program focuses on younger professionals involved with corporate growth, corporate development, and mergers and acquisitions.  ACG 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 seven 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 build on this success.

Comprised of five 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.  The program will also include more informal networking opportunities with other members of the program.   The sessions are typically held in the Century City area in the late afternoon.


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

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