THE NEW NORMAL IN M&A 

Tuesday, June 29, 2021
VIRTUAL CONFERENCE

COVID-19 brought abrupt changes to the M&A process. Now, dealmakers are writing a new rule book
for raising capital,
buying and selling companies and managing liquidity events.

Experience Dealmakers

The Smart Business Dealmakers Conference, formerly known as ASPIRE, connects hundreds of Northeast Ohio business leaders — from middle-market CEOs to top investors and lenders to leading M&A advisers.

With sessions ranging from raising capital to buying and selling companies to planning for liquidity events, our conference covers the breadth of the M&A landscape.

Take a look at this brief video from our last in-person event to hear what people had to say about the content, speakers and participants.
