For Venture Capitalists
Growth5 is a unique marketing firm that helps make companies investable. We inject marketing expertise into growing companies the way the best venture capital firms inject cash. Venture capitalists commonly invest capital in hopes of a company's future growth. Growth5 invests marketing talent to help make that growth possible.
Our Model: It's Like Yours
Like a VC firm:
- We accept a percentage of ownership or warrants of growing companies in exchange for lower or no fees for our services. In exchange, these young companies receive a level of marketing that even more mature companies would envy.
- We leverage our contribution with business expertise. Unlike typical marketing companies and like many VC firms, our team has broad business experience. We use that experience to ensure that our portfolio companies use the marketing effectively.
- We are involved as necessary - from "hands off" to "intensive care." Like good VC firms, we don't hesitate to get thoroughly involved with our portfolio companies' businesses. Typical marketing agencies tend to bolt when their clients get into trouble.
Potential: Our Portfolio Companies' Hallmark
We focus on two types of companies - those in your portfolio or those that could be:
- Early stage companies that we have identified as having the potential to operate on a scale that would make them attractive to serious investors in a relatively short time.
- Later stage companies that you may have identified with similar potential - but who require our expertise to grow.
