Equity Investors/Active Partners

The MBA Group differs from other equity investors in many substantive, ways. For example:

  1. The MBA Group senior partners, companies, strategic partners and resources can and do act as angel investors, private equity investors and merchant bankers.
  2. Our combined resources offer investment options to qualified start-ups growth stage businesses and lower middle market firms.
  3. We require that businesses who seek funding do the research and business planning that is essential if any idea is to become a profitable reality.
  4. As investors, we become actively involved in the investment business – sharing the expertise we have developed in our decades of building businesses and successful investments.
  5. We are led by:
    1. RJ Valentine, an entrepreneur with a 40-year history of building successful teams and small to mid-size businesses, and his partner,
    2. Alan Braverman, a former #1 Wall Street analyst, private equity & venture capital partner and operating manager with large banks and corporations.
  6. This unique combination of individuals and their resources has a simple mission: rapid growth, high ROI, success for all stakeholders.
