About the Conference

The 13th Independent Sponsors Summit returns to New York this September - bigger, better and more unmissable than ever before.


Now expanded to be a 3-day event - including the inaugural Independent Sponsors Summit Golf Outing on September 20 - there are even more opportunities for unrivalled networking for the independent sponsors and capital providers community.


The industry has seen unprecedented deal flow and independent sponsor and capital providers find it more competitive than ever to find strong deals and quality assets on favorable terms.  High valuations, robust demand, supply chain disruptions, limitations due to COVID-19 have all affected the industry in different ways.  Capital is abundant but how do you stand out in an ultra-competitive landscape?   This year’s program has been expanded and meticulously crafted with the help of our industry advisory board to consist of three days of expert-led panels, interactive roundtables, workshops, golf and over 10 hours of networking time and 1x1 meetings.  We look forward to seeing you at the event!

Special thanks to our advisory board:
