DEVOTED TO RELATIONSHIPS

PARTNERING WITH PURPOSE

DCG understands and appreciates the complexities of managing and growing a business. We realize that owners need flexible capital and partnering solutions. DCG tailors our partnerships to fit business owners’ and management teams’ specific needs and situations.  There are three basic questions that help determine if partnering with DCG is the right fit.

1. Do you want to grow your business?

There are plenty of companies who are comfortable and do not want to expand. While that’s often a great place to be, that’s not what we are set up for. We are looking for businesses who have the passion and potential for growth.

2. Are you looking for financial support?

We personally invest in every company we partner with. Partnering with DCG gives you the option to take money out of your business, eliminate personal loan guarantees, and help you gain capital necessary for growth.

3. Do you need a flexible partnership solution?

Your business is unique, which means you need a partnership that’s unique. DCG was built on a desire to serve smaller niche companies right where they are. Our job is to give you the flexibility to take the next steps toward success.

“I’ve known Dan for over four years. He’s not like other investors. He’s a friend who provides honest advice and who is motivated to help others become successful using his experience and his relationships. He’s a smart, proactive, diligent, moral, and strategic partner who is dedicated to serving others above himself. That’s why we partnered with DCG to help us accelerate our business. As I begin to realize the dreams I have for my company, I’m setting aside money to invest with DCG in the next wave of entrepreneurs who are motivated to take their business to the next level.”
