ABOUT DEAL RING_
Deal Ring is produced by Hedge Connection and was inspired by the television shows Shark Tank and Dragon's Den. With thousands of new financial products launched each year, we wanted to create the experience for the financial community. Fund managers and financial entrepreneurs would be our presenters, while professional investors and capital providers would sit on a panel and serve as our Ringmasters. After hearing the presentations, the Ringmasters would ask questions of the presenters and decide whether or not to pursue a follow up meeting.
To make the event work in a live setting, it would be important to have audience engagement and polished presentations. We brought onboard James Rosebush, Former Deputy Assistant to Ronald Reagan and Chief of Staff to the First Lady, to coach and prepare the presenters. While watching the event, the audience uses our custom built mobile app to vote for their favorite presenter. The winner takes home the Audience Choice Award.
The inaugural Deal Ring was held in Chicago on March 16, 2016. In addition to hosting Deal Ring as its own standalone event, we have also incorporated it into our annual Global Fund Forum.
