Meet The Team

Growth Capital Services is a registered broker-dealer specializing in private securities. Our representatives work on institutional placement agent assignments, M&A advisory, late stage direct company capital raises, and late stage secondary opportunities.

While navigating the world of private securities can be unnervingly opaque, our team is here to help. Our goal is to offer solutions, not obstacles: effective guidance in getting the job done right.
