ACG RALEIGH DURHAM
‘Made in the Triangle’
Highlights Local Businesses
In an effort to showcase local businesses, ACG Raleigh Durham introduced a new event,
Made in the Triangle, in conjunction with its 11th annual Capital Conference in April.
More than 35 local business owners and CEOs participated in Made in the Triangle,
which highlighted the business climate in Raleigh-Durham’s Triangle area and facilitated
meetings among executives, capital providers, investment bankers and M&A professionals
who attend the chapter’s Capital Conference each year. A diverse group of businesses was
represented, including Luna Pops, a maker of frozen desserts; Organic Transit, a producer
of solar, electric and pedal-powered vehicles; and Lonerider, a Raleigh-based brewery.
ACG Raleigh Durham designed the joint event to address an unmet need: Each year the
Capital Conference attracts middle-market professionals from around the country who
are drawn to the area but until now lacked the opportunity to meet local business owners
who have contributed to the region’s success.
The chapter plans to host the event again next year with the goal of tripling the number of expanding local businesses it highlights. //
