Ephor Group works exclusively with businesses that have a significant growth opportunity given a landscape of unsatisfied demand.

Fundamental to Ephor's success is our structured approach to creating business models that fulfill accelerating demand curves.  Our thesis approach ensures we only work on opportunities that present significant wealth creation opportunities for founders and investors.

 

We only focus on areas where our principals have led and invested in some of the country's most notable industries. Coupled with this industry expertise we survey and conduct market research intelligence on all relevant players on an ongoing, routine, annual basis (i.e. we know all the major players, providers, and emerging contenders because we routinely survey the market).

Additionally, we consult and work with dozens of technology and service businesses in our industry sectors each year to update our insights and understandings of each thesis arena. 


We focus on asset light sectors with a high probability for wealth creation due to macro, market and demand forces. Today's market is rich for technology enabled businesses services. When asset-light, labor intensive businesses are coupled with technology and focus on providing a unique value-propositions to a highly defined audience; wealth creation moves from probable to inevitable.

Our people have revenue-generating, EBITDA, corporate and business development, and operational experience as owners and investors with proven track records in strategy, marketing, sales, partnering, operations, IT, finance, financial engineering, and management.
