The Association for Corporate Growth (ACG) is one of the most trusted and respected associations for middle-market deal professionals and business leaders who invest in, grow and build companies. Facilitating deal flow, sharing best practices and network-building is at the heart of the ACG membership experience with chapters in the US, Canada, Europe and Asia bringing over 14,000 deal professionals together to help them achieve their business and professional goals.

Membership in ACG Philadelphia

To join ACG Philadelphia, apply for membership below.  Membership is open to growth company executives and deal professionals who are directly involved in and spend the majority of their time sourcing, financing, or executing M&A transactions at the closing or pre-closing stage.
Membership in ACG Philadelphia is tightly controlled and offered on an individual basis, not as a firm. Priority is given to private equity firms, corporate acquirers, PE-backed executives, operating partners, and investment bankers.  
All other prospective members (including lenders, wealth managers, accountants, attorneys, consultants) must: 1) be part of the M&A professional community versus having an interest in selling to our members, and 2) identify and join with a new corporate, investment banker or private equity member (this excludes applicants joining during enrollment to ACGU).

Our annual membership fee is $455 which runs for 12 months from the join date through the end of the month of the date of join.
