Concept Equity Group
CEG offers small businesses the talent and connections to make the next big move.
Concept Equity Group was founded with a vision that growth-oriented small businesses should have access to the same kinds of financial and advisory resources available to big business.
With experience and connections, we prepare businesses for the growth they seek. We do this by closing the funding gap between entrepreneurs and investors. That mission is part matchmaker, part strategist and part makeover artist.
