    Have you recently thought about selling your company but are unsure of the timing? Many CEO’s and business owners contemplate whether this year is a good time to sell a business. McKinsey reported that in late 2023, a spike in M&A activity signaled to capital markets and private equity that selling your business could be good in 2024.

    This interactive panel of Philadelphia Founder/CEOs who have recently sold their company, led by John Lee with Griffin Financial as moderator, will sure be a must-see event, even if you’re not in the market to sell your company.

    John will engage the panel in discussions in the following areas:

    • Determine the right timing to sell your company
    • How to preserve your legacy while maximizing the community and social impact
    • How to determine valuation of your business for personal liquidity
    • The challenges and struggles to get to a closing transaction


    The expert panel of Founder/CEOs will be unveiled in a few weeks leading up to the May event. Register today to secure your spot!

    All Philadelphia100 Forum events are open to current members. Qualified CEOs, Philadelphia100 applicants, Philadelphia100 winners, and Goldman Sachs 10KSB Alumni are welcome to attend up to 2 events before becoming a member.

    John Lee manages Griffin’s Commercial, Industrial and Services Group. He has over 25 years of experience providing merger and acquisition advisory services, private placements of debt and equity capital, and management buyout advisory services for middle market companies in a wide range of industries. His experience includes sourcing, initiating, or managing numerous investment banking transactions for middle market business and government services, consumer and industrial manufacturing, distribution, and technology companies.

    Prior to joining Griffin, John was a Principal with Horizon Partners Ltd., a private equity investment company that acquires middle market companies in leveraged buyout transactions. Previously he served as a Director with the investment banking arm of Berwind Financial Group, L.P.

    What started as an idea to bring recognition to our region has emerged as a new standard – a standard of excellence. The Philadelphia100® is a merit-based program. Only companies that are among the fastest growing, privately-held companies are awarded the Philadelphia100® designation. The integrity of the process and the resulting list makes the Philadelphia100® one of the most sought awards in the region.

    Want to publicly celebrate making the list? Choose a winner's package to get 1 ticket to the event PLUS the digital winner's badge & LinkedIn banner sent to you within a week of purchase (customized badge will be sent after the event). 

    Refund Policy: No refunds will be issued on cancelations less than 15 days from the event.
