Capital Providers
Frequently Asked

  • We differentiate ourselves by working with executives that are developed through our CEO First Program which has been in place since 2005.
  • Executives spend 40+ hours in prep work to develop a niche deal thesis that will be delivered to a funnel of privately held PE firm targets. We train the executives on how to convince those owners to come to the negotiating table.
  • With ACG you schedule your own meetings, and this takes hours of your time. At BlackmoreConnects, we do this for you. Plus, we provide a new selection of executives at every conference. Therefore, Capital Providers may choose to attend all 6 conferences a year.
  • Our Talent Group makes Private Equity the #1 priority. We have a database of 100,000+ “backable executives” that we have been building since 2005.
