All Early Stage companies have one goal - growth. But, each company has its own unique needs to achieve viability and profitability. The Growth Group recognizes these unique needs and has worked with a variety of companies in a variety of ways.
We are proud of our very strong background with both Fortune 100 and early stage companies. We have "sat all around the table": as a successful corporate investor in early stage companies; as a hands-on operating executive of a startup successfully sold to Yahoo!; as a Board member/Advisor to many startups; and, as a founding Board member of the San Jose Software Cluster, the most successful incubator in the United States, having graduated companies which generated over $6 billion in liquidity.
