At the Core

Glengary combines an unparalleled network of support services with investment capital. Our initial investment in an early stage company is typically made after its product or service has been validated in the market. We then work with its leadership to achieve mutually-defined milestones before participating in follow-on rounds of financing, frequently at a size that is a multiple of our initial investment.

More than Money

Believing that early stage companies need "more than money" to be successful, Glengary stands ready to assist all facets of a Client Company's operations, ensuring that stage-critical investment capital, focus, proper skill sets and other resources are brought to the table, while establishing intelligent and dynamic strategic alliances with individuals and organizations virtually impossible for entrepreneurs to access on their own.
