Navigating A New Investment Landscape & How To Adapt 
To describe the past two years as outliers in private markets might be an understatement to many. As the world attempted to adapt to a pandemic, geopolitical tensions, and economic uncertainty, private investors continued to see an abundance of powder and valuations that often grew faster than the companies attached to them. With a more sobered pullback seen leading into 2023, investors are facing the challenges of standing out amongst a larger set of competitors in a smaller pool of deals. Affinity surveyed hundreds of private capital and investment banking professionals to get their perspective on how markets will look in 2023 and the investment trends that will provide the clearest path to successful dealmaking. Join Affinity’s [Team] as they meet with [Customers] to discuss these predictions and the strategies they’ll look to deploy over the next 12 months.

Affinity is a flexible hub where your data can flow in and out of, creating an almost infinitely customizable deal management process.On this panel, we’ll outline the critical data that power users depend on and how they bring that data into Affinity. To close out, we’ll allow you to ask the panel experts questions to give you new ideas on how your tech stack can deliver more efficiencies and insights to your investment teams.

Focus Your Dealmaking with CRM Data
It’s tempting to view the data and information in Affinity only as a window into a specific deal or portfolio of deals.

But with Affinity Analytics you can use many of the same data points to produce dashboards and reports within Affinity that can give you the insights you need to grow your business.Join us as Fabian Krautwurst shares how he thinks about the data within Affinity and demo how Cavalry VC use Affinity Analytics along with Affinity Data to:
  • monitor and report the health of your business;
  • understand how your team is operating and where deals get sourced from;
  • and guide conversations that lead to a team optimized to find the right deals.

Delivering Exceptional Investment Decisions with Better Data
Changing market conditions have shifted focus from a “growth at all costs” to a “path to profitability” mindset. For firms to invest prudently, they’ll require more critical analysis, new data, and extensive diligence. Affinity’s CRM is uniquely positioned to help you make these challenging decisions. In this session, we’ll explore how you can surface critical data points and gather insights from your team to deliver compelling investments that overcome firms’ heightened investment criteria.
