CAPITAL PROVIDER EVENT REGISTRATION

Home / PRODUCTS / NETWORKING EVENTS / CAPITAL PROVIDER EVENT REGISTRATION

What Are These Events?

 

This conference is designed to increase deal flow to capital providers via the establishment of an environment which allows attendees to meet one-on-one with prequalified executives who have an investment thesis. 

 
BlackmoreConnects™ – The Association for Private Equity maintains the bandwidth to do what 99% of lower-middle market capital providers cannot: the time-intensive and exhaustive research necessary to identify the most relevant, desirable and qualified executive leads — who possess the expertise and investment angles your dry powder craves.
 
Throughout the course of a single year, the typical lower-middle market capital provider will receive an average of 2,500 unsolicited executive resumes. Since a typical capital provider has approximately fifteen employees and only closes an average of two deals per year, time is a commodity few are able to utilize. Our executive members have been leveraged, through the use of our ‘Backable Exec’ process, into the qualified candidates with whom capital providers desperately want to connect. We know that a resume is not an angle in and of itself. What we do know is that a resume will be noticed based upon an angle. We realize that capital providers want to get to know executives personally, who they are as people, as equally as they want to understand their angle, which is why we’ve completed the due diligence in seeking out and qualifying those individuals who have actionable theses and assembling them into an environment where you are able to meet face-to-face.
 
This event is the only choice when it comes to Executive-Capital Provider networking when the objective is to increase proprietary deal flow. No one makes connecting easier, more efficient, and rewarding. The ROI to participate will result in increased deal flow!
 
Build Your Executive Bench With BlackmoreConnects™.
Over 500 executives were screened to produce just one qualified executive at these events. As mentioned above, the typical capital provider lacks the necessary resources to create an executive funnel this size. Our platform is the most efficient model for capital providers seeking to differentiate themselves in auctions and other limited processes.
 
Who Are These Executives?
  • Execs who are screened by a recruiting team with over 100 years combined capital provider recruiting experience
  • Execs with actionable, proprietary deals(capital providers pay a success fee only when a deal is closed)
  • Execs who have been coached to adopt an independent operating partner mindset and position themselves as a continual source of proprietary deal flow
  • ‘Backable’ execs who are ready to do the heavy lifting to get deals done over 12-24 months vs. ‘getting a job’
  • Sophisticated executives who understand how Private Equity works
  • Execs to whom a firm can bring a CIM to vet a deal and locate where the ‘bones are buried’
  • Execs who can give you the unique industry angle that will give your firm confidence to win more deals
  • Execs who can help extend your deal team
  • Execs who can be board members
  • Execs who can be future replacement executives
  • Execs who are ready to be short-term consultants
  • Execs who can be interim leaders

The Value Gained By A Capital Provider Via Adding Our Platform To Its Toolkit

BlackmoreConnects™ maintains the bandwidth to do what 99% of capital providers cannot: the time-intensive and exhaustive research necessary to identify the most relevant, desirable and qualified executive leads. Throughout the course of a year a capital provider will receive, on average, 2,500 executive resumes. Since the typical lower-middle market capital provider has approximately fifteen employees and only closes about two deals a year, time is a commodity few possess, let alone utilize. Our executive attendees have been leveraged, through the use of a proprietary knowledge database and networking tools, into the pre-qualified candidates with whom capital providers desperately want to connect. We know that a resume is not an angle in and of itself. What we do know is that a resume will be noticed based upon an angle.We realize that capital providers want to get to know executives personally, who they are as people, as equally as they want to understand their angle, which is why we’ve completed the due diligence in seeking out and qualifying those individuals who have actionable theses and assembling them into an environment where you are able to meet face-to-face.
