“Congrats on hosting a first class event. A very efficient way to interact with a lot of people. ”Bill KiddFounder, Kidd & Company
“Thank you both and the rest of your team for assembling the speed dating event today. It was a first class job. We at Greyrock appreciate all you guys do to facilitate connection-making and deal activity.”Mike DickmanVP, Greyrock Capital Group
“I thought that the Opus Connect team did an excellent job of organizing and executing the virtual Deal Connect for Texas investment banks. The other participants I spoke to also had very positive things to say. Most of us would not have thought four months ago that such high-quality conversations could be had online. Congratulations to Opus Connect for an effective pivot to virtual meetings in this new environment.”Jim Briggs Managing Director, Statesman Business Advisors
“I just attended my first “virtual” deal connect event, having participated in several of your previous in-person events. I was surprised by how seamlessly it ran and felt is was even more efficient than the in-person events. If you keep these virtual, I would double my annual attendance. My only suggestion is to see if you can implement a count-down clock pop up on the screen during the last 20-30 seconds of each meeting. That way it might be easier to wrap up the conversation. Congrats to your team for introducing a valuable new networking tool.”Cary HurwitzManaging Director, WestCape Advisors
“Thank you to the Opus team. I know a lot of work went into putting the Houston Deal Connect together and I thought it was the best event, in personal or virtual, that I have been part of. I know there is still a learning curve for everyone involved, but I found it most productive.Yes, we all are living in a strange new world. Change is coming at us at a lighting pace. Opus is up to the challenge. I don’t see us going back. A job well done.”Benjamin J. Bleadon President, Bleadon & Assoc., Ltd.
“The Virtual Deal Connect that I attended through Opus Connect last month was very worthwhile in forging new relationships with capital providers through time efficient one on one meetings. The Opus team also put together an interesting panel discussion and breakout session. Opus continues to put together a high quality group of participants for all of its programs.”Marc LeizmanPresident, Grenway Capital
“Thanks. Nicely run and very cost-effective. Well done.”Kevin Fechtmeyer Managing Partner, Cave Creek Capital Management
“That was one of the better events I have attended. Ironically the forum was more conducive than less. Well done. On top of everything the tech functioned very well.”Kevin Groff Senior VP, US Bank
“We at Oak Ridge thought that the event was very beneficial to help us continue to develop relationships with Capital Providers across the country. The event was extremely well run in the midst of chaos around the world and a new way of attending these events via Zoom. The Capital Partners that attended the event were all focused on the lower and middle market and are eager to build long-lasting relationships.”Jake NewsomInvestment Banking at Oak Ridge Financial
“I participated in the May 14, 2020, Minneapolis virtual event hosted by Opus Connect. I give this experience a 5 star rating. I found the setup to be efficient and a great method to meet, interact, share information and begin building relationships. In my opinion, this method is in many ways superior to live events and I plan to continue attending them as my schedule permits. ”Fred SussmanManaging Director, Aaron Capital
“I enjoyed the May 14th virtual deal-networking event hosted by Opus Connect. In-person meetings are the best – however, this virtual event was fulsome and convenient especially during these times.”R. B. KiernatManaging Director, Hennepin Partners
“The Opus Connect meeting was very efficient and beneficial to meeting with new potential funding sources, including a variety of private equity, family office, and alternative asset managers for debt and equity with our clients. While COVID19 is causing significant challenges to building new relationships we felt their virtual day was the best we have encountered during these challenging times.”Neil JohnsonManaging Partner, Lawrence, Evans & Co., LLC
