Three companies in the investment banking, commercial finance and strategic consulting markets will host a Homeland Security Investor Conference on Dec. 5 at the Ritz-Carlton Hotel in Washington, D.C.
Organizers say the private, invitation-only event showcasing the most attractive investment opportunities was prompted by the booming homeland security and defense sectors.
The Homeland Security Investor Conference is designed to be a forum where middle-market companies can show their products and services to large global security companies, investors and private equity groups, and prime government security and defense contractors, the event’s organizers said.
The conference will also be an opportunity for government agencies to become familiar with new technology and business solutions.
Participants will have the chance to explore new business and investment opportunities, and to network with key players within the homeland security industry, according to an announcement by the organizers, CapitalSource, Civitas Group and USBX Advisory Services.
“Today’s unprecedented opportunities in the homeland security industry make the Homeland Security Investor Conference an essential tool for investors in this space,” said Penrose Albright, managing director of Civitas Group.
Albright previously served as assistant secretary of the Homeland Security Department's Science and Technology Directorate.
