History

Founded in 1954, the Association for Corporate Growth (ACG) is a global organization with 59 chapters and over 14,000 members. ACG is the most trusted and respected resource for middle-­market dealmakers and business leaders who invest in growth and build companies.

The Charlotte Chapter of ACG was established in 1990 and remains the go-to resource for more than 350 members and 1,000 individuals each year. ACG Charlotte is host of the highly popular Deal Crawl Conference, the Annual Wine Tasting, Charlotte Private Equity Review and a list of other valuable programs and networking opportunities. The Chapter is also known as the "headquarters for middle-market M&A" given the significant density of middle-market investment banks located just blocks from city center.
