Capital Providers & Investment Banks

Mar 14, 2024

Opus Connect is excited to announce its Chicago Manufacturing & Industrial Deal Connect speed-networking event with investment banks and will focus exclusively on Manufacturing & Industrial deals. This exclusive IN PERSON event is hosted in Chicago at Bryan Cave Leighton Paisner LLP and includes highly interactive rotations between capital providers and investment banks from all over the US and Canada. All attendees are pre-selected to ensure quality and facilitate deal-making in an efficient manner.

This event is one of over 20 Deal Connects presented by Opus Connect in the first half of 2024. Please click the Register Now button on the bottom left to sign up. Note that your card is not charged and you’re not officially registered until your ticket is approved by a member of our staff.

All approved attendees are expected to attend all scheduled meetings for the day. Missing three or more meetings will be treated as a ‘no-show’ and therefore subject to the no-show fee. Please reach out to an Opus Connect team member if further clarification is needed.
