Innovation Global Capital partners with visionary entrepreneurs in the development of strategies, branding, organizations, and operations throughout the progressive stages of growth. Our focus is on long-term value creation, growth and profitability — not quarterly capitalism.
We have built businesses. We understand the critical role of product, merchandising and branding, having consumer sector experience across three continents. We partner with leaders who are passionate about the customer.
In select circumstances, Innovation Global Capital will invest in innovative concepts and exciting partners that fulfill our investment criteria. We also have access to substantial pools of capital via relationships with high net worth families, institutional, and strategic investors for co-invest opportunities.
Our unique combination of executive experience and investment capital can significantly accelerate the growth of our partners.
Having met with hundreds of entrepreneurs worldwide, a universally reoccurring theme emerged.

Innovation Global Capital was founded to fill this void.

I'm an Entrepreneur. What kind of board and investors should I assemble?
Think of baseball. One would never try and build a World Series team full of shortstops. A winning team needs a great pitcher, a catcher, a third baseman, and so on. Individual stars who come together to pursue a common vision of achieving the unachievable.
Similarly, the best boards are a balanced team of experts. Assemble a board that can help you build a company and create value by bringing to bear expertise in general management, corporate strategy, brand strategy, tech, finance, management organization and operations. Find experienced executives and smart investors. Be sure the fund partner you respect will actually join your board. Cultivate investors with unique relationships and add a global perspective to supplement a domestic point of view.
How are opportunities assessed?
We consider the following criteria:
What should I address?

strive for global excellence.
Continually innovate for competitive advantage.
Value Integrity and Trust foremost.
Form win-win partnerships.
Contribute to a better society.
We only work with the most innovative entrepreneurs and companies.
Innovation is the only competitive advantage when information is democratic and immediate. In an era where industry disruption can begin in a dorm room, companies must continually innovate to compete in the global marketplace. Equally, an innovative concept or brand can aggressively expand and pioneer a new market. We believe that innovation cannot be a one-off event – it requires a relentless and continual commitment.
We firmly believe only global concepts and companies will survive and dominate in the 21st century. Consumers, markets, trends and information have become globalized. Entrepreneurs can no longer succeed simply by building a parochial domestic company. Whereas global opportunities were often considered only years after a company was founded, now most great ideas are globally scalable. With the right global relationships and knowledge, there are significant first mover advantages for the innovative. Globalization is an oft used word, but the world truly is Global.
It is a given that capital is essential to growth. Innovation Global Capital, however, is different.
We believe capital must be combined with experience, that creativity must coexist with rationality.
We integrate both the passionate emotions of brands and the profit imperative of business.
Our approach to investing is to partner with visionary entrepreneurs who are driven to change the world.
We provide capital and executive experience to propel growth and profitability, working together to create long term value as trusted confidant and partner.
We think like entrepreneurs because we are entrepreneurs.
