BlackmoreConnects™ is a low-cost outsourced CEO 1st program developed for Private Equity by an Independent Sponsor Private Equity firm.

  • We deliver via six In-person conferences in Chicago every nine weeks, when able.    

 

  • Virtual Conferences are scheduled every nine weeks in case we are unable to meet in-person.  

 

  • For $6000 – $12,000 a year we save you over $1M trying to do this in-house.

 

  • It is a philosophy and strategy, which rests on the fundamental belief that the key to success for Private Equity firms is working with, learning from, and developing exceptional people who are driven to create value.  
  • 6-12 per conference and more in-between if you register for six.

• Our target is two Executives for every Private Equity firm attending. The lowest end is one to one.

  • The average is 12, and the maximum is 25 firms per event.
  • One week before you arrive at the conference, you will get all of the Executive’s deal thesis, deal funnel, bio, and resume. You choose your top 5-to-8.
  • 1 Conference, $3,999 for In-Person OR $2,999 for Virtual.
  • 2 Conferences, $2499 each.
  • 3 Conferences, $2000 each.
  • 4 Conferences, $ 2000 each.
  • 5 Conferences, $1500 each.
  • 6 Conferences, $1000 each.
  • For best results, attend six and never stop.
  • Or, attend one to test the process out.
  • How can it compare to ACG?  The goal of ACG is primarily to meet bankers. 

 

  • ACG Capital has 100’s of Private Equity firms and 1000’s of vendors wanting to get at you; it’s too much mental noise. 

 

  • You do it all for ACG – consider how much your time is worth: $500 an hour?   $250 an hour?
