THE MBA GROUP DIFFERENCE

The MBA Group is a conglomerate of businesses founded by entrepreneur and investor, Richard J. (RJ) Valentine and his teams.

Unlike the serial entrepreneurs who found a few companies, RJ has spent decades building dozens of businesses, with 18 notably successful exits and 24 current operating firms in a diverse range of industries.

Unlike private equity investors who are simply transaction-oriented money men, RJ and his partners become deeply involved with the companies in which they invest. Their expertise in operations, sales & marketing, management, and financing helps to ensure that their investment companies succeed for all stakeholders – owners, investors, employees, and clients.

We tend to break a lot of old rules, writing new rulebooks that define more effective pathways to victory. We are proud to share a few of our success stories with you – and outline our process for investment success. Thank you for your interest.

Since the process is not a secret, I thought I’d memorialize it a little for posterity, but more to demonstrate what happens when you bring operational expertise to the firms which you are building and in which you are investing. Here’s my overview of what we do to build a winner.
