CCG is a facilitator of liquidity in the middle markets, which is highly fragmented due to a severe lack of reliable and helpful information available to business owners and business buyers alike. Oftentimes, this lack of information leads to a considerable waste of time and money for: 1) business owners in search of a buyer or growth capital; and 2) capital providers (private equity firms / family offices / angel investors) who are looking to buy or invest in companies that match their investment criteria without having to go through an expensive and inefficient auction process.
CCG connects high quality private companies to high quality private-equity investors & buyers. We put a great deal of effort into finding the right match, thereby maximizing the chances of a successful transaction. Prior to making a connection, we get to know the company’s needs, discuss their options, and then introduce them to the private-equity group or groups that we feel is the best possible match. By evaluating all factors from both sides, this filtering system is highly effective in producing the right match and saving both sides considerable time, money and stress.
