Private Equity Speed Dating

Mergers and Acquisitions To accelerate dealflow, staying on the radar is critical, explains Ben Procter, partner at private equity firm Watermill Group and president of ACG Boston. “Dealsource, a speed-dating process between intermediaries and private equity firms,” is one way to do that, he tells Mergers & Acquisitions senior reporter Anthony Noto at the 2012 Boston Growth Conference & ACG Capital Connection. As one of the main highlights of ACG Boston’s biggest event of the year, dealmakers were able to schedule more than 15 meetings with bankers and lawyers within a 28 hour period between May 30 and 31, Procter says.
