For businesses looking to secure private equity funding, Texas is a good place to be.  Investors are looking at the Southwest as an area with interesting opportunities across a diverse group of industries.

Take the overwhelming turnout for the 2009 Texas Association for Corporate Growth (ACG) Capital Connection earlier this year, for example.  The conference saw its largest attendance in six years.

Connie Mahmood, Vice President/Secretary Treasurer of Allegiance Capital Corporation in Dallas, and a member of the National Board of the ACG, says, “Private equity backing has remained positive, even during these challenging economic times. The criteria and structure of the funding is changing, but the capital is still available for the right investment.”

Events like the Capital Connection bring all the right players together and help get the parties involved early-on in the process.  Attending these types of events will assist you to make the right connections to secure funding for your business.
