Build Partnerships

Situated in a warm, inviting loft in the heart of the South Street Seaport, New York, we host unique events supporting deal flow and new business.

Unique Events

All events, both virtual and in-person, have a unique touch, creating an environment that generates new thinking, creative ideas, and valuable connections.

Streamlined Process

By strategically matching Private Equity Firms, Investment Banks, Independent Sponsors, Family Offices, Lenders and companies, Kontaktsource connects to effectively streamline the deal flow process.

Powerful Connections

The intimacy of our events is what drives our mission. Join us on one of our upcoming events: “Deal Source Receptions” for early evening connections and virtual “Kontakt over Kaffe” mornings to start your day. We would love to make the connection.

“Kontaktsource has been an outstanding venue for Phillips Capital Group LLC to meet with like minded professional dealmakers of various skillsets, knowledge and industry experiences. The opportunities to partner on transactions is very much encouraged. The quality of participants, settings, and topics of discussion is quite exceptional!”

“As a service provider, the ability to interact with private equity, independent sponsors and investment banks in one-on-one conversations within the intimate environment that Kontaktsource fosters is priceless. The connections that I have gained through Kontaktsource would have been difficult to achieve though any other networking group. I highly value my relationship with Marianne and the rest of the Kontaktsource team and look forward to building on those relationships in the years to come.”
