About this event

Agenda — Networking, Expert Panel, Small-group Breakout, Panel Summation

With trillions of dollars at stake, those who own and control investment capital profit handsomely by severely undervaluing privately held businesses. Lenders lure you with teaser rates. Investment partnerships dazzle you with fancy marketing materials. These are the tools of their trade, helping them earn excess return on your hard work.

You can finance growth and stick to your moral compass while avoiding the tricks of the hucksters who want to take outsized returns on your hard work and innovation. You hold in your hands the knowledge to achieve a Breakout Valuation!

The program will feature a panel of CEOs and will address how each views value creation for their business.
