Thank you all for joining us for our latest podcast episode with Charlie. He is the managing director of DealFlow Events, which has hosted hundreds of in-person and virtual events covering a wide array of business and investment topics.

Charlie, thank you so much for joining us today. I’m excited about this interview and the timing is perfect now that we’re entering a whole new year filled with events.

Yeah, thanks Jonathan, for having me on. I appreciate it and I’m happy to be here and tell you more about The Microcap Conference and more about DealFlow Events.

But, yeah, I’m Charlie Napolitano. I’ve been with the company for seven years and DealFlow Events has been around now for 21 years since 2003. DealFlow focuses on events in the capital markets and we’ve been focused on that for 21 years with events taking place globally. And we’re excited for this next event that we have coming up January 30th through February 1st, which is called The Microcap Conference, in Atlantic City.

Great. So why did you all decide to launch a microcap conference?

Yeah, you know, it’s something we’ve been thinking about for quite a while. And we’ve always been looking for the right time and the right place to host it. And now personally, I go to Atlantic City 5-6 times a year. I’m a big poker guy and when I was down there, it just kind of felt like an untapped resource. I hadn’t been to a large event there, but the spaces there are just so beautiful. The hotels are so nice right now, and I felt like it would be a place where people can go and enjoy themselves.

Simultaneously, we were looking into conferences in the micro-cap space, and we just felt like we had value to add there. As an event company, whose sole purpose is to bring people together into one space, we felt like in the Northeast, we could host something, bring value and bring people to what I think is a great place to have fun.

Awesome. And how can investors make the most of their time while they are at your microcap conference?

Yeah, that’s a great question. I think the first thing that investors can do is they can take a look at the presenting companies on the website.  Or now, investors who have registered can go into MeetMax and start scheduling meetings with these companies. They’ll be able to log in, get the bio of each company, the ticker symbol, and I think the best thing is to spend a little time learning about each one of the companies, visit their website, see who their IR teams are and see which ones are going to fit into their portfolio and the companies that they like to invest in. They can, right away, schedule time to sit with those people before their calendars fill up.

I think that we are making it as easy as possible to get people down there. Specifically, buses running from Midtown Manhattan to Atlantic City that any investor can hop on free of charge. The room blocks there are just $79 a night. All the rooms there are beautiful and renovated at Caesar’s. So, I suggest that people stay there.

And other than the one-on-one meetings, we do have companies presenting as well. I think that investors would find value from sitting down and hearing from these companies in that setting and then obviously tons of networking. So, come meet with companies, but there will be other people that they can network and meet with, as well, people who can help with their future investments. I hope that they’ll meet with them as well during our launch party, wild west after party, and our poker tournament.

Well, while doing my own preparation, I noticed you have all different types of microcap companies. So, if you want, please give a little bit of an overview on that maybe next.

Yeah. So, the companies that people can expect to see there range from market caps of $30 million to $500 million. We have a couple that are as high as $900 million, and we have some that are in the $10-12 million range, which we found were interesting companies and good growth opportunities.

And, we have a really wide range of sectors – we weren’t sector specific for companies. So, you can find ones that are in healthcare, information technology, consumer, fintech, energy and many others that you will see on the website.

And then you also have a programming portion of the event. Let’s hear a little bit more about that.

Yeah, so that’s fundamental to DealFlow Events. We’ve always put a strong focus on our programming, putting together cutting-edge education and bringing thought leaders together to share their experiences on specific topics, and The Microcap Conference isn’t any different from our other events, in this respect.

So, we put together some great panels and keynote presentations. Investors will be able to learn about investment strategies, and I think the issuers will be able to learn about doing a capital raise with PIPEs, learning about different IPO strategies, and things like that. We’ll have speakers there like Peter Schiff and a lot of other great speakers, as well.

That’s incredible. So, what else would set your event apart from similar ones from event organizers in the space and how do attendees benefit from participating at your event specifically?

Yeah, another great question. I would say that as an event organization our primary goal is always the experience of our attendees from the second that they register, to the event itself, and beyond. We like to make things as seamless and easy as possible. I hope that that comes through to people through our website design and just the way that we interact with our attendees. Somebody’s always here to answer a question as quickly as possible.

At the event itself, we like to ensure that everything is organized and people are getting a great value, specifically, receiving valuable information that they can’t get anywhere else. Also, people will find the one-on-one meetings are structured well with quality companies and investors that are definitely worth speaking with.

And, while we’re here, can you give us a walkthrough of your entire 2024 events timeline as it exists right now? I’m sure you’ll probably find some ways to expand it, but also, is there anything else you want to share with the audience – maybe what to expect going forward through this year?

Yeah, definitely. I’d love to see your listeners come to our other events, as well. We have the Venture Debt Conference taking place in New York City on March 6th. We’ve got the Activist Investor Conference taking place in New York City on March 21st. We have the SPAC Conference taking place at the Westchester Country Club on June 11th and 12th, followed by the Reg A Conference taking place on June 13th also at the Westchester Country Club. And we’ll have some more events taking place in the fall that we’ll announce in the next month or so. And anybody who physically attends The Microcap Conference will see that we have plenty of promotions for the sign up and attendance of future events.

Incredible. Well, thank you so much for joining us, Charlie. From the very first event we attended, we’ve always been impressed with your team’s conferences. You really have an amazing line up for this year and we look forward to seeing you in Atlantic City soon.

Yeah, same here. Can’t wait to have you guys. Thanks.
