ACG Minnesota is a networking organization focused on growing the middle market through mergers and acquisitions. Our almost 300 local members are driving those deals! ACG members are corporate leaders and trusted partners. ACG members benefit from our global network of almost 12,000 members and over 90,000 investors, owners, executives, lenders and trusted advisors worldwide.

ACG Minnesota hosts over 50 events in the Twin Cities every year, and the BOLD Awards is one that honors and recognizes the innovative and inspirational organizations that make Minnesota BOLD. This program celebrates the corporate leaders and teams that are behind successful mergers and acquisitions, financing and extraordinary strategies that lead to sustainability, remarkable performance and/or accelerated growth across all industries and size including non-profits. The judging process is intense and thorough, with the intention to narrow all nominations down to 18 finalists across 6 categories with the added 2020 Start Ups - because that is BOLD in itself. The event is a vivid, high-energy BOLD celebration of the businesses that grow Minnesota! We work with a local videographer to produce a professional video of each finalist showcasing their efforts and successes. The winners of each category are announced at the event and finally the BOLDest of BOLD winner is chosen at the event via a real-time, live audience vote.
