Important Information about COVID-19 & ACG San Diego Event Postponement

At this time, there is unfortunately a confirmed case of the COVID-19 virus in San Diego and an official request by the Governor of California to avoid public gatherings through the end of March. Our hope is that the victim experiences a full recovery quickly and no more cases occur. Increasingly, our member companies are advising employees and their clients to work from home, to cancel all non-essential travel and to avoid attending conferences and other large gatherings, many of which have been cancelled. Considering the dynamic nature of this situation, and the health and safety of our members and attendees, ACG San Diego is postponing the following chapter events:

  • March 17: Impact Investing – HCAP Partners’ Investment in Mission Healthcare
  • March 19: NextGen Event
  • March 24: New Member Lunch

Your registration will be cancelled and refunded in full. As each postponed event has been rescheduled, we will promote a new date and details.

We at ACG San Diego will continue to monitor this situation and follow any advisories issued by the San Diego County Health & Human Services. In addition, ACG Global is monitoring the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the Canadian Public Health Services and World Health Organization (WHO) response to and guidance about COVID-19.

We apologize for any inconvenience to our participants and wish good health for our community at home and worldwide.

After ten years of growth, Mission Healthcare was known throughout Southern California for providing a variety of quality health services within the home-setting.  It had all the infrastructure, certifications, and insurance provider relationships to operate smoothly, and was recognized for two consecutive years as a Great Place to Work®.  The founders wanted to continue making a positive impact, and improve their availability and quality of care.  They also wanted to diversify their financial risk and monetize some of their hard work.  The panelists will share how the founders, a new outside CEO, and a patient capital partner with an aligned focus on impact investing came together to achieve each parties’ goals, and take this San Diego success story into its next chapter.

Key Takeaways:

  1. How impact investing can mix in the economic glue that ties a deal together
  2. How to find an outside CEO who can match an organization’s original mission while shaping its culture and strategy for the next growth phase
  3. How to determine the right strategic investor for your business
