Generational Group’s Growth and Exit Conference Surpasses 100,000 Attendees in North America

By Generational Group


Business owners throughout North America attend the investment bank’s conferences to learn the effective strategies of growing a business for eventual sale.

We are pleased to announce that more than 100,000 business owners throughout North America have now attended the popular Generational Growth and Exit Conference.

Our complimentary, educational conferences, held in cities across North America, help business owners develop growth and exit strategies that maximize their business value.

For years, we have hosted weekly conferences throughout North America, advising business owners on the importance of developing a strategic plan for growth, success and eventual exit. No other investment bank has reached middle market business owners on this scale.

At each Generational Conference, attendees learn the building blocks of effective business planning, strategic timing for achieving higher valuation, the importance of business cycles, and how to identify and attract optimal buyers. Here is what our clients have said about the conferences:

“We’re excited to have reached the 100,000th business owner plateau in August of 2022,” said Terry Johnson, Chief Revenue and Strategy Officer with Generational. “Educating business owners is a core component of the Generational mission and we are humbled to have had an impact on so many business owners and their families. This important milestone validates our thought leadership in the industry and inspires us to continue to make a difference.”

Johnson added, “The central purpose of our conference is to challenge the status quo and to elevate the importance of intentionality when it comes to growing and exiting a business for maximum value.”

With inflation and uncertainty impacting businesses of all sizes in 2022, Generational continues to help clients achieve their financial and personal goals. Despite these uncertain times, the firm is continuing to leverage the M&A supercycle and is on track for another record year with middle market transactions.

“In today’s rapidly changing financial landscape, it is more vital than ever that business owners are able to understand how to navigate a sale that will optimize their exit,” Ryan Binkley, President & CEO of the firm, said.

Binkley added, “We are honored to have hosted so many business owners over the years, helping to educate and inform a critical segment of our economy on the most important business decision they will likely ever make.”

Generational Group was ranked as the No. 1 investment bank in North America by Refinitiv in 2021 for M&A transactions up to $25 million, and No. 2 in transactions up to $100 million, $500 million and $1 billion.
