New to the investment side of private equity, KONTAKTSOURCE immediately put my new fund on the map by participating in targeted networking events with investment banks and other private equity funds that afforded me quick visibility into new deal flow,” said Jeffrey Wasserman, General Partner of JES Global Capital. “In addition, with their affiliation to service providers, my fund was able to obtain the appropriate insurance policies from very knowledgeable folks that made the process seamless and easy.

What Marianne has initiated with KONTAKTSOURCE serves to further demonstrate her level of customer service. She has thoughtfully included me in numerous planning sessions for KONTAKTSOURCE, in an attempt to design networking events that are optimized for the types of deal flow sources and co-investors we desire to meet. I have made numerous relationships from this introductions that I have continued to develop over the last few years.

I have attended many deal sourcing conferences over the years, and KONTAKTSOURCE is one of the very best in terms of targeted introductions to high caliber investment banks, boutiques and other sources of deal flow. The intimate setting allows the invite-only participants to maximize their time and build high quality relationships. In addition, during lunch, KONTAKTSOURCE does an effective job of briefly discussing issues impacting risk in private equity deals, which keeps me up to date on these topics.
