Investment professionals are often overwhelmed by companies seeking to raise capital or gain open-market support to increase liquidity. How can you stand out and effectively deliver your message and build relationships that can make a difference?
CEM provides unique opportunities to meet face-to-face and build relationships with key contacts within the investment community. Through our partners’ fund at CEM Capital and over 10 years of curating an exclusive investor database, this allows YOU to just show up. We have done the legwork.
Our three-pillared approach:
Capital: our mandate is to seek investment opportunities and grow our capital so that we can align with our investment community with our events.
Events: our destination events link public and private issuers with top-tier investors through 1:1 meetings and networking at select venues across North America.
Virtual: these online meetings keep our issuers and investors connected throughout the year.
We curate valuable experiences through our pillars to build relationships and connect capital with opportunity.
