The Association for Corporate Growth Detroit Chapter August 9 Lunch and Learn at the Detroit Golf Club featured Mark Horne of Plymouth Growth Partners, Julie A. Langdon, CFA of Prudential Capital Group, Gary Lewis of Cascade Partners, and Doug Sutton of Huron Capital Partners. The panel focused on private equity, non-traditional lenders, mezzanine debt, recapitalizations, minority equity investors, and non-traditional debt and equity financings as a means for providing growth capital. This seminar built on previous topics to show alternatives to traditional banks as a source of growth capital and financing.
