The Deloitte Entrepreneur Summit presented by Deloitte Private
This year's Entrepreneur Summit will be held at the Omni Frisco Hotel, which is adjacent to The Star—the world headquarters and training facility of the Dallas Cowboys.
- One-on-one meetings between attending companies and relevant investor groups
- Panel discussions that address key issues currently impacting M&A activity and the capital markets
- Guest speaker Rick Reilly, author, screenwriter, and member of the National Sportswriters and Sportscasters Hall of Fame, will bring "his breezy, hilarious, and yet often emotional style" to this year’s keynote address
The focus: Networking and insights
This one-day event offers privately held companies the opportunity to engage in one-on-one meetings with approximately 175 investor groups—including private equity firms, family offices, and sovereign wealth funds. These investor groups collectively focus on all industries and investment types.
Attendees will learn more about the private equity alternative and receive specific insights from professional investors. Many companies view this event as a business development opportunity, given that attending investor groups own portfolio companies in similar industries. Organizations with no near-term plans to transact will also find The Entrepreneur Summit to be a valuable learning and networking experience.
Deloitte will collect detailed, post-conference feedback from the investor groups based on every meeting they attend, and coordinate appropriate follow-up dialogue. All investor groups execute a non-disclosure agreement as part of the registration process. This precludes them from contacting companies after the conference without a specific invitation to do so.
"Having decided to build on my understanding of the options presented by private equity groups, I attended Deloitte’s conference. I was incredibly impressed by the roster of firms with which I met and benefited significantly from hearing about different approaches companies can take to generate growth. Beyond receiving great feedback on our company’s strategy, I really enjoyed the discussions."
– Diane Butler, CEO, Butler Burger Group, LLC
