Capital Connections: Networking and Insights for Independent Sponsors

Come and join us this September for the 15th Independent Sponsors Summit in New York City! This summit is the ultimate platform for independent sponsors and capital providers to connect, network, and explore new business opportunities.


The program is packed with valuable insights and knowledge from expert-led panels, interactive roundtable think tanks, and workshops. Industry leaders will lead the expert-led panels, discussing the latest trends, insights, and best practices in the independent sponsors and capital providers community. Attendees have the opportunity to learn from the experts and take away actionable insights that they can apply to their own businesses.


The interactive roundtable think tanks are designed to provide a more intimate and collaborative environment where attendees can engage in in-depth discussions on topics relevant to the independent sponsors and capital providers community. Participants can exchange ideas, share best practices, and establish new connections that can further enhance their knowledge and professional network.


The workshops offer hands-on training and education and provide attendees with practical skills and knowledge to help them stay ahead of the curve in a fast-paced industry.


In addition to the expert-led sessions, the summit offers more than 10 hours of networking opportunities and one-on-one meetings. Providing attendees with valuable face time with industry peers, potential business partners, and experts, helping them to expand their network and stay up-to-date with the latest industry trends.


This year's summit promises to be bigger and better than ever, with a golf outing as part of its three-day agenda, offering even more chances to connect with fellow attendees. Our commitment to delivering a superior experience means that we have ensured more 1x1 meeting times than any previous iGlobal Forum event.


We’re introducing a new and unique opportunity for you to host your own networking event at the 15th Independent Sponsors Summit & Golf Outing, thanks to our new program called Get-togethers. Get-togethers are independently run and hosted networking events that take place around the main conference. From breakfast meetups to VIP dinners, or even happy hours.
