Once companies have overcome the hurdle of startup costs and found reliable employees, it’s time to generate capital for continued momentum.

A business’ revenue and growth projections should be realistic and achievable. Conferences and networking are a great way to reach pragmatic business goals.

Industry conferencesThese events, like those organized by Financial Services Exchange, (FSX), give companies the opportunity to meet independent broker dealer, fund manager, investor, and other industry resources.

FSX conferences are where entrepreneurs from all levels have said that they have forged some the most lasting relationships over the years.

“Presenting companies get to mingle with broker dealers and potential investors in structured and unstructured meetings. They have several days to make lasting impressions on key decision makers from firms nationwide,” says Judy Ensweiler, executive director at FSX.

Fund managers believe that the breakout and one-on-1 sessions following formal presentations have the greatest impact. FSX is a firm believer that the proof is in their pudding.

The FSX conference network has raised more than $2.8 Billion for presenting companies to date.

“Investor conferences like ours play a key role in raising capital for financing, publicity and more. Part of being able to connect for success is having the time and space to come in as strangers but leave as friends,” adds Ensweiler.

The ability to accurately predict company growth depends on the investor opportunities and the company’s resources. Accurate growth projections are important for long-term profits, and they can also affect the price of shares.

After only one conference, a presenting company to FSX stated that their share prices had increased by 100%.

In an uncertain market, there are many options to attract capital and investors. Industry conferences have helped them do this for over 30 years. For more information and to sign up, visit fsx1.com
