A Distinctive Fundraising Event for the Lower Middle Market

CapitaLinx is SBIA’s exclusive matchmaking opportunity for small business investors in the lower middle market. Since 2012, the platform has generated thousands of meetings and fostered ongoing relationships between lower middle market GPs and LPs.

CapitaLinx provides a unique opportunity for institutional investors to meet high quality, small fund managers representing a diverse range of geographies and investment strategies. In return, this fund diversity attracts a wide range of potential investors — from family offices to foundations and endowments to insurance companies, fund of funds and banks.

Held alongside two SBIA conferences each year – in April during the West Coast Capital Summit and in October during the National Summit – CapitaLinx utilizes a robust, confidential, one-of-a-kind platform to facilitate one-on-one meetings between institutional investors and lower middle market funds.

West Coast Capital Summit

CapitaLinx @ West Coast Capital Summit

The 2024 West Coast Capital Summit will take place from Tuesday, April 9 through Thursday, April 11, 2024, at The Waterfront Beach Resort in Huntington Beach, California. All funds that register for the conference are eligible to participate in CapitaLinx*. CapitaLinx meetings are held concurrently alongside conference sessions and are private, pre-scheduled meetings. Unlike other industry conferences that offer speed networking, at CapitaLinx:

  • Meetings are held for 25 minutes, making them both efficient and productive.
  • Meeting selection is made by LPs, so GPs are only meeting with LPs that have an interest in them.
  • No additional fee* is required to participate.
