Welcome to the Corporate Growth…Capital Style blog, the official online forum for all Association for Corporate Growth National Capital members.
The Association for Corporate Growth (ACG) is the global community for middle-market dealmakers and business leaders interested in driving corporate growth and value through best practices in management, strategy, mergers, acquisitions, and corporate finance.
ACG National Capital, the local chapter representing the Washington, D.C., metropolitan region, is one of ACG’s largest chapters worldwide. We provide a forum for networking, deal making, and professional development for Washington business leaders involved in building corporate value through M&A, strategic partnerships, organic growth, and capital funding.
The nation’s capital is home to a wide variety of enterprises engaged in a dynamic and thriving business community. Some of the world’s most recognizable brands and exciting start-up organizations call this region home. The Washington metropolitan area has proven to be one of the nation’s most resilient business communities with relatively low unemployment, a highly skilled and educated workforce, consistent economic growth, and a business-friendly environment. Representative fast-growth business sectors in the region include government contracting, biotechnology, Internet, new media, telecommunications, and information technology.
The Corporate Growth…Capital Style blog was created to provide access to the collective thought leadership and business knowledge of this impressive community. Focusing on M&A, private equity, venture capital, corporate valuation, and general corporate best practices as well as other topics of significant importance to the Washington business community, the blog is intended to be a valuable information resource and learning tool for ACG National Capital members.
We hope you’ll find the information and content posted here on the blog interesting, entertaining and most importantly, useful in helping to operate and grow your business. In return, we simply ask that you not stand on the sidelines.
This community can only function and accomplish its mission if the collective business-savvy of ACG National Capital members, partners, and sponsors participate. So, we invite all of you to read the information we present, but also to get involved by commenting on the posts. Share your knowledge with the community by telling us what you think, providing anecdotes on how the topics have affected you and your business, contributing posts, and sharing your knowledge with the community. Together, we can make this blog a success.
Thank you and I hope to see you at the next ACG meeting.
