The 4th annual CapitalCon features the leading minds in capital raising discussing how building funds, serving investors, and raising capital in 2018.

Join us in New York for CapitalCon – the most intensive, fast-paced investor relations and capital raising boot camp in the industry. Each participant will architect strategies to position themselves to naturally attract qualified investors and strategic counter-parties, through a dozen small-group exercises, a thought provoking workbook and expert advice.  There is no other event globally with more capital raising experts all sharing their advice openly with the audience. 

This event will cover more than a dozen strategies for raising capital and over 25 specific tangible actions you can start taking immediately to raise more capital each quarter.  Every strategy presented comes with case studies, examples, and implementation steps based on the daily application of each strategy by the Family Office Club and Wilson Holding Company.  

Successful capital raisers on stage will share their most effective success secrets.  As a participant you will benefit not only from our real-world application of these strategies, but also more than a decade of research into the science of influence, persuasion and investor engagement.

Benefits of Attending:

  1. Master Best Practices & Emulate Proven Strategies:  Throughout the day you will be completing a
    Capital Raising Core workbook and by the end of the day you will have an actionable plan that integrates best practices and proven capital raising models for your organization.
  2. Develop Your Capital Raising Plan:  Regardless of whether you are a hedge fund, private equity fund, real estate professional or investment banker you need to stand out from the competition in a meaningful way. This one day workshop will teach you exactly how to do it.  You will leave with a plan in hand to execute.
  3. Avoid The 7 Most Common $100,000 Mistakes:  Almost everyone who starts out raising capital for a fund or private company makes the same mistakes. What you should do is not always obvious, and worse than that, it is often counter-intuitive.  At this workshop we will show you why you should reach out to fewer investors and figure out who those investors are. Typically, only one type of investor fits your sandbox, USP, investor funnel, and is making up your investor avatar.  This investor avatar concept alone will save you from hours of fruitless activity, ensuring results through the best possible use of your most valuable resource, time.
  4. Gain a Capital Raising Edge:  When raising capital, second place in a competition can mean no capital allocated, and a consistent third or 10th place can mean you are out of business and have to close shop.  Getting your emails responded to, phone calls taken, and meetings Venue Photo 3booked with potential investors is critical, every 1% improvement in doing so can mean more capital raised.
  5. Identify the fundamental marketing materials and strategic IP assets you need to create, distribute, and leverage to be taken seriously. Stand out from the herd trying to raise capital daily, to your target investors.
  6. Develop a System to Attract Investors Like Clockwork:  Let your competitors cold call 60 prospects a day while you setup systems to consistently attract targeted and pre-qualified investors to you every month. During this workshop, we will show you how to accomplish this at zero cost.
