Venture Capital for the MassesTM

Who We Are

TBG Holdings and sister company, R3 Accounting, provide opportunities for select accredited investors to participate in the accelerated growth of early stage companies. TBG creates value for its shareholders by leveraging its “first view advantage” – spotting underappreciated and overlooked companies.

What We Provide

TBG provides promising companies with a “Bridge to Liquidity” in the form of capital infusion and assistance with compliance filings, financial restructuring, and assistance to become publicly traded.

Perks of Being a TBG Accredited Investor

  • Learn about early investment opportunities that the outside market will not see until after the first growth has already passed.
  • Acquire positions at discounts.
  • Avoid common mistakes that happen when you do not have enough information about a company.
  • Define an exit strategy based on intimate knowledge of a company’s timeline.


TBG Holdings began as an off-shoot of The Birch Group, which was started in early 2000. The Birch Group was a consulting firm working, primarily, with smallcap private and public companies that wanted to grow, either organically, or through mergers and acquisitions. We saw that many public small-cap companies ran into a shortage of capital, which forced them to let their accounting and finances fall behind. Our philosophy is, if you know the financial details of the business, you have a better chance of success. With this in mind, The Birch Group partnered up with R3 Accounting to form TBG Holdings Corp, incorporating the business expertise from successful, innovative, and dynamic business & service companies. The combined entity, TBG Holdings, offers a fusion of cognitive thinking, deal structuring, growth strategies, and capital recruitment

An Accredited Investor is legally defined as:

An individual who had an individual income in excess of $200,000 in 2010 and 2011 or joint income with that individual’s spouse in excess of $300,000 in each of those years and who reasonably expects to reach the same income level in 2013. For purposes of this offering, individual income shall equal adjusted gross income, as reported in the investor’s federal income tax return, less any income attributable to a spouse or to property owned by the spouse, and as may be further adjusted in accordance with the rules, regulations, and releases of the Commission;

c. A bank as defined in Section 3(a)(2) of the Act, or a savings and loan association or other institution as defined in Section 3(a)(5)(A) of the Act, whether acting in its individual or fiduciary capacity; a broker dealer registered pursuant to Section 15 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934; an insurance company as defined in Section 2(13) of the Act; an investment company registered under the Investment Company Act of 1940 (the “1940 Act”) or a business development company as defined in Section 2(a)(48) of the 1940 Act; a Small Business Investment Company licensed by the U.S. Small Business Administration under Section 301(c) or (d) of the Small Business Investment Act of 1958; or an employee benefit plan within the meaning of Title I of the Employee Retirement Income Security Act of 1974 (“ERISA”), if the investment decision is made by a plan fiduciary, as defined in Section 3(21) of ERISA, which is either a bank, savings and loan association, insurance company or registered investment adviser, or if the employee benefit plan has total assets in excess of $5,000,000 or if a self-directed plan, with investment decisions made solely by persons that are accredited investors;

d. A private business development company as defined in Section 202(a)(22) of the Investment Advisers Act of 1940;

f. An individual who is a director, executive officer, or general partner of TBG Holdings, an entity in which all of the equity owners are Accredited Investors as defined above.

We identify startups that we believe will make tomorrow's headlines and we preposition ourselves and our investors at a time before the rest of the world is much aware of what is coming.

This allows us to experience the explosive growth in valuation as the company expands into its market in the first few years. There is no better growth rate for companies than that which a successful startup achieves as it matures into its market.

We differ from a brokerage because we do not charge you when you buy or sell your stock. We are not looking for a short term percentage gain and instead are looking for a long term multiple of our timely principal investment.

This type of investment is not for everyone as there are always the risk factors of management, continued funding and market acceptance of the product. Because of this only about 5% of all investors can even be invited to take part. You must be a sophisticated accredited investor with income or net worth requirements. You must demonstrate by this that you could sustain either a complete loss or a longer than expected return.

You are being allowed to participate in the early on capitalization of a company with a new idea or product. In bygone years only investment banks and hedge funds got those first look opportunities.

So how do you manage your risk in the growth arena? Please note I said manage not eliminate. Total elimination of risk cannot be done and each individual investor must assess their own risk tolerance. If you have little or none then this type of investment is not for you.

There are several factors that help in reducing your overall risk exposure:

How We Create Wealth

Managing Risk

TBG Holdings has continuously refined its operations focus over the ensuing years. As the markets matured and cycled through their seasons we adjusted our approach to take best advantage of the opportunities presented in each season. In the present environment, our strongest focus is on bolstering the security and value of our members’ holdings through 1) the acquisition of portfolio companies with strong growth potential and 2) expansion of the shareholder base.

If you are an accredited investor (see definition below) and would like more information about how you can become a TBG Shareholder, please call 954-440-4678.

How We Do Things 

First, how we do it at TBG Holdings. We identify a company that we believe will be disruptive in its field. By that we mean that it is so revolutionary, it will change how that type of business is done. We buy in, put our money up and we take as large a position as it takes to assure we can control its focus. We take the company to the next level – but with a caveat. We appoint one of our accountants as the CFO. We write the checks. We provide back office functions and marketing support. We call it “guard-rail” venture capital. While it does not eliminate all things that could go wrong, it does give us confidence that all funds are applied to exactly what the company needs.

Great Timeliness of The Launch Of The New Idea  

Have you heard that timing is half of life? If the new company’s product or business is of a nature that there is a great need for it at the time, a certain amount of success should be inherent in the fact that its delivery solves a significant problem, or provides a service that is in great need at the time.

The Basket Approach  

This is old school growth company investment. You select several promising companies and spread your risk between them. The accepted wisdom here is that if one or two do not perform that well, surely the third will.

Build A Venture Capital Relationship 

Find a venture capital company with a history of taking care of their clients and work with them with a long term vision of how the investment company should grow and when they achieve expected milestones you can be sure of when to take profits.
