Annapolis, Md. – A new facilitated networking opportunity Capital Connections, will premiere at the upcoming NIC 2015 Capital & Business Strategies Forum in San Diego, March 31-April 2. This is a networking opportunity specifically designed to foster meaningful connections for financing and investing opportunities between Capital Providers and Capital Seekers – with particular emphasis on capital requirements for small and mid-cap operators in seniors housing and post-acute care.

The networking sessions will feature 37 capital providers “pitching” their financial solutions to capital seekers. Three one-hour dedicated sessions will be held concurrently on the following finance areas: development and turnaround financing; mortgages and business loans; and equity, leases and other partnerships. Each session will include presentations from about 10 capital providers.

The capital providers selected to make presentations underwent a competitive vetting process by a planning committee and were among the top capital providers in their category.

This unique networking opportunity is designed to:

  • Introduce capital seekers to a targeted group of capital providers attending the NIC Forum.
  • Enable capital providers to present financing solutions actively being offered to small/mid-size operators.
  • Provide a more efficient and user-friendly platform for operators to assess their financing options and to develop new capital partners.
  • Offer opportunities for follow-up by capital seekers interested in further developing a financing strategy tailored to their specific needs with one or more capital providers.
