More independent sponsors are entering the lower middle market each year. Some are former fund investors, others are former operators, and fewer are both. As capital providers shift strategies to look for new and creative ways to deploy their capital, partnership with independent sponsors on deals is an increasingly attractive model. But in the absence of a relationship, how can a check writer build quick trust with an independent sponsor? And besides the actual deal, what can the independent sponsor bring to the table to add value throughout the life of the investment?
Join some of the country’s leading lower middle market capital providers and seasoned independent sponsors to hear them share their experiences and suggestions for building successful partnerships. Following the panel, questions are encouraged from the audience.
