Andy Clapp
Managing Partner, Brightside Venture Capital 

With all the capital seeking to invest or acquire companies, why is it so difficult for some companies to conclude a reasonable deal, or any deal at all?

Andy Clapp will address this topic and present his message on why you should focus on a Transition rather than a Transaction, and the steps that can be taken to successfully raise capital or achieve a liquidity event for you and your shareholders.

Andy’s experience includes GE, Consulting with Arthur D. Little, President of Equifax Research, transatlantic investment banking with Downer & Co., launching and managing 3 funds, and currently advising companies on capital raising and transitioning ownership.  He is a graduate of Clarkson University and Amos Tuck School at Dartmouth.
