What is DealSource?

DealSource at M&A East is the most efficient way for sell-side investment banks and private equity firms to conduct targeted private meetings to source deals. In 2020, ACG Philadelphia is joined by ACG Boston to host a Virtual DealSource focused on Industry Verticals that will also include strategic acquirers and private-equity backed companies. 

What's unique about DealSource 2020?

We’ll host Industry Vertical DealSource to leverage the unique aspects of a virtual environment – no travel and ease of access.  This format allows senior level industry specialist investors and industry coverage bankers to join their BD teams to engage in highly curated and valued small group meetings. ACG Philadelphia and Boston have already hosted virtual industry vertical dealsource events this past Spring to excellent reviews.
