Entrepreneur's Growth Network, LLC brings together business leaders; successful entrepreneurs and functional experts who are experienced in managing highly successful growth companies. By leveraging our connections and resources, entrepreneurs learn how to become investor ready and maximize value before a significant capital event.
Entrepreneurs that can attract and implement a private equity recapitalization often create life changing wealth and we know how to do it. We teach business owners how investors evaluate companies by sharing scorecards and other tools used by investment firms; then we build a value creation plan together. Throughout this mentoring process, entrepreneurs learn that an “investor ready” company is built for sustainable success with high odds of a successful future capital event.
