Real Advocacy Power

The vast majority of private equity funds investing in the lower middle market do not have a voice in Washington. Post Dodd-Frank, funds of all sizes can expect increased regulatory and legislative burdens. Many of these changes disproportionately impact smaller funds and their investors. Small and middle market companies are a vital engine for growth and jobs. On Capitol Hill, the SBIA’s legislative team advocates for lower middle market funds, closely monitoring and thoughtfully influencing the legislative and regulatory environment. In addition, we facilitate our members’ communications with policy makers allowing them to tell the real story of private equity, its positive impact on small businesses, job creation, and innovation. Join your peers and be heard in Washington by joining the Small Business Investor Alliance. The larger our organization grows, the greater our ability to change the private equity narrative in government.

Access to Dealmakers

The Small Business Investor Alliance facilitates interaction among the key players in the small and lower middle market that no other organization can match. At our events you experience a close, collegial networking environment where decision makers and deal makers come together. All of our events provide an opportunity for senior level networking and deal sourcing. CapitaLinx provides LPs a unique opportunity to meet high quality, small fund managers across a range of strategies. We know how valuable your time outside of the office is and distinguish the Small Business Investor Alliance events from other industry organizations by thoughtfully limiting both membership and event attendance by service providers.

Continuing Education and Industry Resources

Our priority is to ensure that our members have access to continuing education, informative discussions and best practices geared toward small business investment professionals. Members have access to SBIA’s online membership directory, legislative updates, and other resources to help them stay ahead of industry trends, best practices, and regulatory changes that impact the back office through the "members only” sections of our website. Additionally, members receive discounted registration prices to Small Business Investor Alliance events as well as discounts to other industry events hosted by our strategic partner organizations.
