EMG takes a unique approach to investing in and managing the companies it acquires. Entrepreneurs are assisted not only financially, but also with management recruitment, contacts, and facilities to ensure innovative ideas reach their potential. The EMG companies receive detailed attention and guidance from professionals that keep an active interest as each business plan is created and implemented with long-term interest.
One of the most unique characteristics of EMG is the "buy to hold" mentality; in other words, investment strategies do not include exit strategies.
The staff consists of professionals with experience in virtually every aspect of business, which enables our team to close the gaps in areas that a company lacks. Using EMG's extensive worldwide network, companies create valuable relationships with those who can help improve any segment of their business.
Investment Stages: Concept, Growth or Expansion
EMG invests in very early development, at the proof of concept stage where a business idea may be in its' early stages. EMG goes beyond simply financing, such as supporting product development, prototyping, testing, and the protection of intellectual property to ensure that the concept becomes a successful reality.
EMG also considers later stage projects where a product or service is ready for or has already entered the marketplace, but requires additional capital to further develop its' potential. Here, businesses are not only assisted by EMG, but are able to take advantage of the labor, manufacturing, transportation and other resources available in the Erie region.
