Register Now for SBIA's 2024 West Coast Capital Summit!

The Small Business Investor Alliance's West Coast Capital Summit will take place from Tuesday, April 9 through Thursday, April 11, 2024, at The Waterfront Beach Resort in Huntington Beach, California.Continuing in the expanded format introduced last year, the 3-day event merges a variety of networking opportunities and shorter sessions with an informal, relaxed SoCal vibe. The conference also serves as a host for CapitaLinx, SBIA’s exclusive matchmaking opportunity for institutional investors and lower middle market funds.

The West Coast Capital Summit:

  • attracts more than 200 lower middle market fund managers, limited partners, investment bankers, and industry professionals;
  • offers a collegial networking environment with senior-level decision makers;
  • includes substantive content sessions, as well as timely updates on the legislative and regulatory agendas in Washington;
  • features the Dealmaker's Wine Tasting reception, a unique opportunity to connect with select limited partners; and
  • serves as a host for CapitaLinx, SBIA’s exclusive matchmaking opportunity for institutional investors and lower middle market funds.

Held alongside the West Coast Capital Summit, CapitaLinx facilitates one-on-one meetings between institutional investors and lower middle market funds. This highly successful networking event is an exceptional opportunity for participants – whether you’re a GP actively fundraising or going to market soon, or an LP looking to find new fund managers to invest in. Unlike other industry conferences that offer speed networking, at CapitaLinx:

  • Meetings are held for 25 minutes, making them both efficient and productive.
  • Meeting selection is made by LPs via SBIA’s robust, confidential, one-of-a-kind platform, so GPs are meeting with LPs that already have an interest in a fund's team and strategy.
  • GP participants are established fund managers representing a diverse range of geographies and investment strategies that include: Buyout, Growth Equity, Mezzanine/Credit, Venture Capital & Venture Debt; SBIC funds, RBIC funds, BDC funds and conventional funds; and impact investors such as ESG, LMI and MBE. Most are raising a fund $300mm or less.
  • CapitaLinx attracts a wide range of potential investors — from family offices to foundations and endowments to insurance companies, fund of funds and banks.
  • No additional fee is required to participate, but CapitaLinx participation requires additional steps by GP participants to set up your firm's profile.
