“We presented at NIBA and the response was fantastic. Both the formal and informal gatherings were effective, and we enjoyed the entire conference and learned a lot. The networking was also very beneficial.”
Paul Errigo, President & CEO, New York WaterMaker

“The July 2018 NIBA meeting was an excellent forum for new and exciting companies to present their story to the investment banking community and for investment bankers to get exposure to high quality early stage companies. The variety of companies and their presentations was impressive and the audience was clearly engaged. The NIBA meeting was enjoyable and the forum provided a great venue for efficient exchange of information.”
Linda R. Judge, IP and licensing attorney, Liu, Chen and Hoffman LLP

“I really salute the NIBA event. It was an extremely good networking event, a solid presentation platform to real and interested investor groups and was executed remarkably well. I cannot say enough about Jim Hock and Hanover International team for their efforts in rehearsing the pitch and the setup of one-on-one meetings prior to the day of the event.”
CytoBioScience Incorporated – James Garvin, PhD 

“The NIBA conference is a fantastic platform to meet quality investors, investment bankers interested in helping to raise capital and/or to gain company exposure. This event is perfect for those companies just getting started or who are already established in the capital markets. It is smaller and more intimate as they typically only have 25 presenters. Jim Hock and the Hanover team did a superb job of prepping our team for the conference. The pre-conference work Hanover did to identify appropriate financial targets to speak with enabled us to get significant value from our time at the conference.”
inno360 – Peter Wengryn, President and CEO

“As an entrepreneur that’s raised > $280M, I’ve been to a lot of conferences. NIBA was the most productive I’ve ever attended. Through the support and sponsorship of Linda Judge, Jim Hock and the Hanover team, I met the right people in the right environment and have started building all the relationships required for our next level of funding. Highly recommended for both entrepreneurs and investors.”
Front Range Biosciences – Nick Hofmeister, CFO & Co-Founder

“NIBA was a very important conference for Deep Space Industries. The team at Hanover spent many hours with us and did an extraordinary job of helping us prepare for the event and it paid off. We received interest in our company from over 10 well respected investment banking firms and were able to conduct one-on-one meetings with many of them at the conference. This would have taken us weeks of work to accomplish in any other way. The event was well-organized and the follow-up from Hanover has been a great help.”
Deep Space Industries – Bill Miller, CEO

“The NIBA Conference placed DeviceFarm in front of the right people to start effective capital formation. With Hanover International’s sponsorship and feedback during rehearsals, they helped us to present well and to drive interest to DeviceFarm from the investment community. This conference is an effective way to gain exposure and begin capital raising to reach your next major milestone.”
DeviceFarm, Inc. – Jeffrey Roe, CEO

“Congratulations to NIBA on their best conference to date. What a great experience. Three years ago I was invited to attend my first NIBA conference. With little expectations I found a very welcoming community committed to my success. I have found much more than a professional association and I’m humbled by the overwhelming support I have received while growing my business. If you could use friendship, camaraderie and an expansion of your professional network, then without a doubt you should be part of NIBA. Come and meet many interesting companies, CEO’s, bankers, investors, etc. In short order it will become the place where everyone knows your name!”
Brian F. Zucker, CPA, RRBB

“As a business attorney, I recommend presenting at the National Investment Banking Association (NIBA) conference to all of my clients looking to raise capital. It would simply not be possible to get meetings with the buy-side professionals that the companies meet at NIBA. In terms of the value proposition, for the cost of the presenting company fee and a day or two of time, the companies can get in front of a roomful of buy-side professionals that would otherwise take months and cost an exorbitant amount of money to visit individually. The success rate of NIBA has been proven to me. My clients have received attention, education, relationships, referrals, and financings from their NIBA presentations. Once, a banker even wrote their proposed financing terms to one of my client companies on a napkin as we were eating breakfast after having seen the company present the day before and that deal, did in fact, happen. The largest IPO I ever worked on was underwritten by two NIBA members. Personally, I have met so many finance professionals in all areas at NIBA that I am able to introduce my clients to nearly every connection they need through their start-up, growth, and development phases, making me a valuable resource to my clients. I have been a member of NIBA for over a decade and am proud to serve on their Board of Directors now.”
Lynne Bolduc, Partner, Fitzgerald Yap Kreditor LLP
