GROWTH. TRANSFER. LEGACY.

EVENTS

The Exit Planning Exchange Philadelphia Chapter holds events throughout the Greater Philadelphia & Bucks County area. 

Our association events promote peer learning, networking and visibility for our members in the local private company advisor community.  Topics cover all three phases of the private company life cycle: business value growth, business value transfer and owner life and legacy. These meetings are held in two locations:

  • Downtown Philadelphia on the third Wednesday of each month from 7:30 AM - 9:15 AM.  (Excludes July & August)
  • Suburban Bucks County on the fourth Wednesday of each month from 7:45 AM - 9:30 AM.

We also organize late afternoon meetings in Greater Philadelphia.  Check out our event calendar below for the details on our latest meetings!

    Independent sponsors help to bridge the gap between institutional investors, motivated executives seeking their next professional challenge, and family and founder-owned businesses looking to transition.

    We will explore the unique benefits of an independent sponsor and the best practices that lead to success.

    Join us on January 15th when R. Kenneth Bryant, Managing Partner and Co-Founder of Sidereal Capital Group, provides an introduction to learn how Independent sponsors help prepare small business owners to navigate the private equity ecosystem.
