About

Global Group offers early stage private funding for small businesses, startups and entrepreneurs with winning ideas. As angel investors, we provide seed capital to help build businesses, support growth and aid in creating value for business owners, their customers and potential acquirers. Our mission is to help passionate small business owners, startup management, and entrepreneurs who are committed to investing themselves and are able to create, communicate and deliver value to a defined market. We know the first stage of funding a business idea can be very difficult. There may be negative reaction to unproven ideas and people, and it’s hard to get anyone to listen and to commit to backing visionaries. We want to invest in you and your ideas. We can help with getting you the capital you need, in return for equity. Even if you’re not incorporated, or haven’t started organizing or building your entity yet, we’ll help you with the funding you need to get started – from the idea stage – to the growth period – and when it makes sense, to the business sale. Have a great new business idea? Contact us at GlobalGroupUS.com so we can help you get it funded quickly.
